I have a friend who is an Auditor. He has been in South Africa for less than 5 years on a general work permit. He has applied and received his PR based on special skills. My question is, would I qualify for this type of PR permit as I am an Accountant on a general work permit that expires in 4yrs (2014). I hold professional qualifications as opposed to a degree. Would I be considered for this type of PR?
