I have been working in SA for the past 2.5 years on a quota work permit. It expires in March 2014 so I'm starting to think about the joyous prospect of going to home affairs to renew it!!
Does anyone know the earliest that I can apply for a renewal - I think I read that you can only re-apply within 3 months of expiry but can't find confirmation.
Also, the home affairs website suggests that renewal is automatic if you're still working in the same position (which I am) and that minimal documentation is required. But elsewhere I've read that they can ask for police clearance, medical report etc. Anyone been through this process and can help?
