Permanent residence permit holders, who have been out of South Africa for a long time

Holders of a permanent residence permit who leave South Africa, and remain outside the country for a long period of time, may lose their permanent residence status. It is therefore important to check on the regulations regularly should you currently reside outside South Africa. There have been cases where it was possible to reinstate a lost permanent residence status.

Should you have any questions on this subject or if you are worried that you may have lost your permanent status, please contact us directly for advice on your individual situation.
