You are able to come to South Africa to complete and internship of 1-3 months on a standard visitor’s visa. If you would like to do a double internship (back to back three month periods) you will need a different type of visa. Please let us know if this is the case and we will assist with this.

*** Accommodation

Accommodation in Cape Town is in high demand, especially near the university and surrounding areas where lots of students live. We recommend that you wait until you know where the company you will be placed at is located before booking accommodation. We recommend Air BnB and Cape Stay as reliable sources. If you are particularly interested in living with other students, please send us an email with your requirements and we will assist with putting you in touch with suitable landlords.
