SAMI Study - South Africa

This new and exciting project has given students from overseas the opportunity to study in South Africa without the hassles that one would experience when organising it alone.

SAMI will organise everything from accomodation to study Visas.

Check below for the list of courses on offer.

Visa Categories

We have strategic partnerships with a reputable study institution approved by Department of Education, QCTO
approved and endorsed by the Department of Home Affairs, South African Foreign Embassies and Missions
to approve study visas from abroad.

We know many French, Portuguesend and Spanish speaking students struggle with English and our
learning Institution offers accredited English courses, which will allow you to claim credits
to any other courses and provides a-one-stop portal for all your study requirements and most
importantly the best news you can work 20 hours per week legally at any job whilst you study.

Our accredited courses and learning institutions have been approved by the Department of Higher Education
and therefore the Department of Home Affairs will have no problem with your working in the informal sector
whilst you study, as it is the practice in most parts of the world.

Our world class strategic study institution partner embraces modern technology to facilitate structured programs
to learn at your own pace and the reason they can do this is by embracing leading edge IT solutions.

Note: It is a requirement by law that you attend lectures physically, if you want to study in South Africa
and if you require long distance learning without a study visa we can assist you there as well.

Change of status from Visitor’s Visa now allowed for spouses and children of South African citizens and permanent residents meaning you can from a tourist visa to spouse or relatives visa

Spouses and children of South African (SA) citizens and permanent residents were prohibited from changing their Visitor’s Visas, used to enter South Africa, to other types of longer term visas, for example relative’s visas, study visas and work visas. These applicants had to travel abroad (to their home countries, although they perceived SA as their home country) file the required longer term visa application at the South African Mission, obtain the visa and then return to South Africa. This meant in practice that families were torn apart, the spouses’ right to cohabitation and children’s rights to dignity were infringed whilst the visa formalities had to be met. V.5405
