Hi,

ZAR 20,000 per month, per applicant income or sufficient capital to equate to this, or a combination of both.

If you need more info, please feel free to contact me via Direct Message or Email.

Best regards

Hi, depends on how comfortable you would like to retire. A decent and comfortable home to purchase could set you back from $100k t0 $200k, a standard 1.6 litre motor vehicle from $15 to $25k( a decent 4X4 SUV around $40k), and comfortable monthly living expenses for a couple, about $2-4K a month, with k=1000.

Hi,
I retired in Cape Town with my wife almost 9 years ago, moving from USA. It has fantastic. I would suggest contacting an immigration consultant as the regulations (and the interpretations) change from time to time. I can recommend someone if you wish. (There are some unreliable people in this business, I'm afraid.) - Dave
