Entrepreneurs starting a new business or individuals investing in an existing business in South Africa should obtain a Business Visa.
Compliance with various statutory requirements as well as the minimum investment amount will determine whether this will be a successful application. Certain industries are listed as undesirable, whereas others are actively supported by the Department of Home Affairs and/or the Department of Trade and Industry to grow the economy and in such cases requirements may be reduced. The feasibility and economic contribution (in terms of job creation) are also important factors to consider when preparing your business plan.
