Big Four challenge SA immigration laws

KPMG, Deloitte and PwC hit out at new laws in South Africa for the immigration of skilled workers 

PwC, KPMG and Deloitte have warned that new immigration red tape in South
Africa could hinder economic growth in Africa’s wealthiest economy.

New rules in South Africa have made it increasingly difficult for skilled
foreigners to work in the country. This has been a major problem for the large
number of multinationals that have established themselves in South Africa and
require senior professionals with international experience.

According to the FT Deloitte, PwC and KPMG have circulated a draft
letter to South African president Thabo Mbeki among foreign business chambers.
The letter calls for an easing of rules on general work permits, intra-company
transfers and quotas for skilled migrants.

The shortage of skills is a major problem for South Africa, but with
unemployment also a major concern, government is reluctant for political reasons
to allow foreign workers to pour into the country.
