Sawubona! (Hi in Zulu)
I am staying for half a year in South Africa. I am working, but staying on a tourist entry permit (since it is very hard to get a work-permit for South Africa, hence the unemployment rates, wich hover around 26%!)
The temporary entry permit allows me to stay for 90 days, after that I have to extend it. I went through all the bureaucratic fuzz at the department of home affairs to apply for the extention, but I am far from confident it is going to work out well.
My question is: is anybody experienced in the phenomena 'borderhopping' (a.i. visiting a neighbouring country for a couple of days, coming back and hopefully receiving a new 90-day permit?).
Even if it is not in the specific region, any comment on the issue is very welcome!
