About Us

Global trends in migration continue to grow – in 2019 over 42 million people relocated to find a new home country, at least 12 million of those were relocating permanently. This trend is not unique to South Africa – however what is unique is that South Africa is not capitalizing on the opportunity of immigration from the millions of people looking for a change. International politics, economics, climate change, the threat of war and a desire for a new experience has resulted in an increase in the number of HNWI retirees looking to retire abroad. This category of travellers has been steadily increasing over the past 10 years and research indicates that it will continue to grow.

Retirees are moving to exciting, exotic locations. Driven by the need for their retirement savings to provide them with a better standard of living and a lifestyle they have only dreamt of throughout their working life. This is a great time for South Africa to capitalize on the opportunity of immigration from the millions of people looking for a change.

Retire2SA is about bringing together all that is wonderful about South Africa and collectively making an impact to move our country forward. If we are to convince foreigners that a life in South Africa really is better than anywhere else, we need more than just a tourism approach. We need to focus on:

A simple retirement residency programme

A professional services solution

that covers banking, tax, legal matters, foreign exchange / exchange control, investment solutions and insurance

Clarity of foreign property ownership

specifically related to primary residential retirement living

A positive message from Government

that confirms we welcome retirees

A clear path and access to private medical cover

Entertainment and leisure possibilities

across South Africa – not only in the traditional tourism markets
