CRITICAL SKILLS WORK VISA

Join us

The Critical Skills Work Visa will enable the South African government to achieve the objectives of programmes such as National Development Plan (NDP), Industrial Policy Action Plan (IPAP) and New Growth Plan (NGP).

HOW IT WORKS

The main objective of the critical skills work visa is to assist South Africa to realise the achievement of the National Infrastructure Project, the Strategic Infrastructure Projects and Key National Strategic Projects in support of the Department of Trade and Industry. It will enable the South African government to achieve the objectives of programmes such as National Development Plan (NDP), Industrial Policy Action Plan (IPAP) and New Growth Plan (NGP) by attracting relevant skills to the country.

The Critical Skills work visa is issued in accordance with the critical skills list. The list was developed in conjunction with the occupations in high demand and the scarce skills lists of the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET).

SAIBA will issue the critical skills letter to support the application for the critical skills work visa by its member in terms of the Guide to issuing Critical Skills Confirmations (CSC). These members have to demonstrate that they are in good standing as SAIBA members have the relevant qualifications and work experience.

IMPORTANT: Once you have completed the form you will need to email it along with your professional qualifications/designation and a copy of your ID to membership@saiba.org.za
