The issuance of work permits and matters relating to residence in general are administered by the Department of Home Affairs, which has local offices in all the major cities of the Republic. Because of the general shortage of skilled labour and management personnel, the issuance of a work permit for those categories of persons, generally for a six-month period but renewable on a regular basis, rarely proves difficult to arrange. Expatriates working in South Africa on a contract basis are free to remit remuneration to their country of origin, and such expatriates are not subject to South African exchange control restrictions unless they choose to take up temporary or permanent residence in the country. Only in the case of permanent residency are these restrictions at all onerous.
