Expat Academy South Africa: Procedural Changes for Qualification Evaluation and Transfer of Skills

Qualification Evaluation

Effective 16 September 2019, the South African Qualifications Authority (SAQA) will allow only qualification holders (applicants) to follow up on their own evaluation applications.  SAQA will no longer allow third parties (such as immigration agencies, attorneys or family members) to follow up.

Third parties will, however, still be able to assist with compiling the application, translating non-English documents, submitting the application online (with the applicant’s own email address), having the application delivered at the SAQA office and collecting the issued SAQA certificate.
