Moving to South Africa

Your in-depth guide to relocating to South Africa

If a work opportunity is taking you to South Africa, or you are drawn to its natural beauty and want to relocate for a better work-life balance, it pays to be prepared before the big move.

South Africa is a huge expanse with both modern, cosmopolitan cities, and remote rural communities alike. Most British expatriates will live and work in one of the main cities, where the lifestyle is vibrant, exciting and culturally diverse. The cost of living is low, as are house prices, while the career opportunities are plentiful.

For those moving from London to South Africa, it can take time to settle into the way of life. While many customs and business practices will feel familiar, there are just as many differences. Cadogan Tate has the information and advice you need to help you get prepared before you move.
