Hello, we are thinking of moving to South Africa, probably Port Alfred at the marina. We want to know how to apply for a residence in South Africa, how it will work.

We are Europeans and will invest in a property there in SA.
Thank you

Hi,
My wife and I are American who emigrated to SA some 13 years ago. We came as retirees and had to prove we had enough income to survive. Immigration is a very complex subject and changes often. There are lots of lawyers and consultants to help but they can be expensive or fraudulent. I have had excellent experience over the years with Intaglio at intaglio.co.za .
