I am about to move to SA with my husband and dog. We both have business visas. I am wondering about what identity document we can use to e.g. buy a car or rent a place. Is our passport with visa enough or do we need to apply for ID number in SA? 

I don't seem to find any information about this online. Thanks for any help.

Hi Daria - a passport is fine. Obviously you'll need to open a bank account too. I'm not sure where you're coming from, but you'll find South Africa is very "first world" in most respects - in particular the banking system, buying a car, house rental...
