A South African Student Visa gives our clients the right to live and study in South Africa for the duration of their course. For your case to be successful, you will need to have been accepted onto a course at a South African college, university or other educational institution. Our network of contacts in the South African education sector mean that we can find just the right place of study for you. Once you have been accepted and enrolled onto the course, you will have fulfilled the basic requirements of this visa. It is important to note that the course must last longer than 6 months in length and you must be able to prove that you are financially able to pay for the course fees and your own living expenses. You are expected to attend your classes and failure to do so may result in the revocation of your Student Visa. Additionally, clients must have health insurance that lasts for the duration of their course if they wish their case to be successful.


You could be studying in South Africa in a matter of weeks thanks to Global Visas. Our team work tirelessly for our clients in securing their South Africa student visas, meaning that applying to study in this beautiful country is now quicker and easier than ever. Currently, the South African authorities, who are responsible for the actual processing of cases, have set a timescale of just a few months for student visa cases. Because these times and prices are subject to change by the SA authorities, we would always advise our clients to wait for their case to be successfully processed before financially committing themselves to travel arrangements.



Another great benefit of a Student Visa for South Africa is that our clients have the freedom to work whilst they study for up to 20 hours per week. This way, you can earn while you learn all in the beautiful surroundings that South Africa is world famous for. You will not be required to have a job offer from a South African business for your case to be accepted. And this type of visa can, once your studies have been completed, lead to a work permit.
