Direct Permanent Residence
A permanent residency permit allows a foreign national to stay within South Africa for an unlimited period of time.
Permanent residency can be broadly divided into two main groups: that of "Direct Residency" and "Residency on other grounds".
Direct Permanent Residency can be obtained if a foreign national is either:
Spouse of a South African citizen or permanent resident
Or it's someone with an economic value of the investment funds in the republic
Or that it is useful in aspects on the process of the labor under the rules of skilled workers
Or disciplines in which there is a shortage in the republic
South Africa is one of the few countries in the world which actively promotes immigration as a part of their immigration policy. What distinguishes South Africa even further is that, unlike certain countries which set limits on the number of immigrants they will accept, South Africa actually set's annual targets of how many people they hope to attract. South African immigration system does not discriminate based on a person's nationality or country of origin. Immigrant's come to South Africa from all over the world and are treated equally under the same laws.
Permanent residency is not exactly the same as citizenship. The holder of a permanent resident can apply for citizenship if they have been in possession of their permit. Nevertheless, the holder of this type of permit has the same rights and duties as a South African citizen (excluding the right to vote).
Direct Permanent Residency takes anywhere between 15 To 30 Days to obtain, in some cases longer
