    Abstract

    South Africa is presently experiencing a serious shortage of skilled workers. This situation is negatively influencing the economic prospects and global participation of the country. The primary purpose of the study was to determine the effectiveness of sa’s immigration policy to support skills immigration. The outcome of this study indicated that South Africa’s immigration policy is restrictive and has undoubtedly influenced the shortage of skills in the country. This study has confirmed the findings of similar studies undertaken by the Centre for Development and Enterprise that South Africa’s skills immigration policy is very restrictive and is thus not helpful in addressing the skills shortages of the country
