Permanent residence permits will be issued to Zimbabwean students graduating from South African universities in critical skills areas.

A new settlement route has been opened in South Africa for highly skilled migrant students with graduate qualifications in certain courses.

This will mean that they will be able to get permanent settlement permits without the need to get a new job. All they need is a University certificate and they will qualify for the permits.

There is a list of degrees that have been considered for graduate permanent residence permits.
