Get the guide to going home

23 September 2005

Gatvol? Bored? Curious? Homesick? You’re not the only one.

Every year an estimated 300 000 South Africans return home – some for a holiday, others to get married, start a business, find work or start a family.

South Africa’s future has never looked brighter: the economy is booming, lives are improving, our sports stars are winning and we’ll even have our first underground in a few years. Serious food for thought for South Africans living abroad.

The Going Home Resource Guide, published by the London-based SA Times, is the next step for anyone considering returning home. It’s a detailed, informative and practical guide to relocating from north to south.

Including everything from hot jobs and investment opportunities to buying property and shipping your car back, the Going Home Resource Guide is an indispensable aid to any would-be homecomer.

It even includes the legal lowdown on getting married in South Africa and returning to the UK, as well as a comprehensive service directory and emigration checklist.

Every person’s reason for returning home home is different, and the guide doesn’t presume to tell you everything you already know. It just aims to make the process a little easier and a little simpler.

Your journey home starts here.

South Africans living in the UK can get the guide by texting their name and address to the SA Times. Text SAT, your name and postal address to 60999. The text costs £2 and the cost of a normal text and covers postage costs.
