Class D - agriculture and animal husbandry
Class E – prospecting for minerals or mining
Class F – trade, business or non-prescribed profession
Class G - manufacturing
Class H – prescribed professions
Class D applications should submit necessary permits to the Ministry of Agriculture and Co-operatives, Class E applications must have a mining right license from the Department of Geological Surveys and Mines, while Class F and G applications must furnish a Trading License.
At the time of submissions for Swaziland Work Permit application, the applicant will receive a dated receipt to help track applications; there is currently no application fee. At this point, the Ministry forwards the application to the police to ensure that the applicant has no criminal record. Once cleared by the police, the application goes to the Training and Localization Committee. Subsequently, the application goes to the Temporary Residence Permit Committee which makes the decision on the applicant. This committee includes officials from the Ministries of Home Affairs, Enterprise and Employment, and Justice. The Ministry of Enterprise and Employment is responsible for judging whether the business is viable and may require a business plan and interview to ask questions regarding the proposed business.
Once the Committee makes its decision, the Ministry writes a letter to the applicant. The applicant then goes to the Ministry’s accounts office to pay for the Permit. The Permit must then be signed by the Chief Immigration Officer and the Accounts office. If the application is complete, the Ministry’s target is to issue entry permits within two to three (2-3) weeks.
Entry permits are granted for periods up to five (5) years although the applicant should justify the request. This justification can be based on the level of exports or jobs to be created, or because a commercial bank refuses to provide a loan to those with only a two-year entry permit. In general, most applicants – both investors and employees – receive a two-year permit.
Entry Permit fees are as follows:-
one year – E1200 / US$169.01
two years – E2400 / US$338.02
The fees are the same for renewals.
