On the issue of 'top jobs'. Normally the reason why companies says citizens
only is for BEE points. even after you are naturalised you will still not
be a BEE person because the definition of BEE restricts to only those who
were citizens before 1994. So, you will still be sidelined of the 'citizens'
only job.

But nonetheless its a good thing to become a citizen though. Because when you
have kids they automatically become citizens and you dont have to go
through the painful process of applying for visas, and PRPs

Thanks jollem
