Post Waiver for graduates from SA universties-PRP application

Hi All,

Does the waiver for foreigners that studied at south african universities have a time limit? for example if one graduated from an sa institution in 2012. Would this still apply given that the waiver came into effect after this.

Also can anyone prescribe a template foe the comprehensive currciulum vitae required as part of the PRp application- ill be applying as a 27b candidate, but im sure there are things they look for in this cv..

Thanks all

As long as you graduated from a South African university with a critical skill, you will be fine. As for thr CV, mine l just put my current role as Experience. I graduated last year and only have 4 months experience. I Collected my PR last month

You said you picked up your PR last month? When did you apply? I'm waiting for mine so trying to get an idea of timelines; although I know every case is different.

Time scales are really different. Mine took exactly 2 months. But my friend applied in January and he is still waiting.

I am also applying under this category. How do you prove that your field of study is on the Critical SKills list? Do you need to get a letter or something?

I had a letter from the Professional Board stating that l am eligible to register upon completion of training.

You can also get a letter from the Head of Department from your tertiary institution
