Internship opportunities: Become part of our Team!

The Italian-South African Chamber offers an internship program from January to December addressed to students or young workers that wish to live an experience abroad.

Nevertheless we must specify some points…

  • The Chamber doesn’t reimburse any expense that might occur

  • The cost of life is of about 800 euro, which includes house rent, car rent, food, fuel and all normal daily-life expenses for working days and weekends.

  • The rent of the apartment (included in the above-mentionned 800 euros) is of 300 euros per month (to be paid directly to the owner of the house)

  • An international driver license is required  because public transport are not efficient in South-Africa.

  • A medical insurance cover is required

  • No vaccinations are required

  • The level of criminality in the country is higher than in Italy, but if someone follows the right precautions there is no actual harm

  • In South-Africa all credit cards circuits should work but we suggest to verify with the bank before leaving the home country.​

Due to VISA reasons, the period of stay in South Africa cannot exceed 90 days, if the student wants to stay over 3 months we can organize
the VISA request.
