Hi Team,

I have 2 years of experience in Automation Testing in India. Now, I would like to work in Pretoria, South Africa.

How easy to grab an opportunity in Pretoria with the experience I have?! Your suggestions/guidance will help and give me a lot of confidence to work in SA.

For me it takes 3 more months to land in SA. However, I would like to be pre-planned.

Any suggestions will be appreciated!

Thanks & Regards,
Kushal Desai

Hey Kushal,

I'd recommend having a look at online job listings on indeed.co.za and bizcommunity.co.za. You might be able to find something on gumtree.co.za, but be wary of possible scammers.

Another option is signing up with a recruitment agency.

Good luck!

Hi Meagan,

Finally, applied for Critical skills work permit VISA through VFS Global. How much time it actually takes to know the status of my VISA application?

Hey Kushal, I've passed your question on to my colleague Shantalie, who's quite knowledgeable about SA visas – she should be getting back to you soon. Congrats on the job!

Thank you very much, Meagan!

You and Shantalie are so kind and helpful. She replied to my comment. Requested her to answer 1 more question.

Hopefully, I should get my work VISA soon.

Hearty, thanks to you both.
