In order to apply for a Quota permit, your profession has to be listed under one of the categories as per the quota list. The following requirements are also very important:

– be registered with the relevant body, board or council in South Africa.

-5 years relevant work experience

-Proof of formal qualifications evaluated by the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA).

Within three months of issuance of a quota work permit you have to find employment and submit proof thereof.

If you do not meet the criteria above, a general work permit is another option. For this you will require an offer of employment.
