Thanks to its developed economy and rising growth rate, South Africa has become a top destination for expatriates worldwide. Whether you are planning to work, study or set up a business in the country, several opportunities are available.

South Africa is a big country with many landscapes, cultures, languages, and lifestyles. It’s a friendly digital nomad destination — and yet, a relatively unexplored one.

Johannesburg is a young, vibrant cosmopolitan metropolis with a diverse population and a fascinating history. Known affectionately as “Jo’burg” or “Jozi” by the 4.4 million people who call it home, the city is the largest in South Africa and the second-largest on the continent.

Young and dynamic, Durban attracts many expatriates by its lively and bustling environment, its pleasant climate and its tourist cachet. CNN reports aptly that ‘Joburg is trendy, Cape Town is glamorous, but Durban is cool’. Indeed, situated on the coast as well as close to many typical Zulu cultural sites, the city hosts an intercultural mix of spice markets, theatres and art galleries as well as very popular tourist attractions.

Being one of the biggest and most densely populated South African cities, Cape Town is full of opportunities. Cape Town – also known as the 'Mother City' – attracts foreign nationals not only for its prosperous economy but also for its diverse and multicultural environment along with various leisure activities. As a supply to the demand, Cape Town also provides a range of accommodation to expatriates looking forward to settle there.
