BOTSWANA WORK PERMIT SPECIALISTS
Looking to get a visa to Botswana? Botswana is a landlocked country located in Southern Africa. It has land borders with Zimbabwe in the northeast, South Africa in the south and southeast and with Namibia to the west. The country is a broad tableland with a mean altitude of 3,300 ft. A vast plateau of about 4,000 ft in height, extending from near Kanye north to the Zimbabwean border, divides the country into two distinct topographical regions. The eastern region is a hilly bush country and grassland (veld). To the west lie the Okavango Swamps and the Kalahari Desert. The only sources of permanent surface water are the Chobe River in the north, the Limpopo in the east, and the Okavango in the northwest. In seasons of heavy rainfall, floodwaters flow into the Makarikari Salt Pans and Lake Ngami. Botswana is regarded as the least corrupt country in Africa, with a stable economy, and a peaceful environment including a focus on growth and development. The primary sectors for growth and development include diamond, mining, and agriculture. If you are looking to grow your business or bring in the valuable skill set of your foreign employees into this jurisdiction, Botswana offers various immigration options for exploring business opportunities, and for undertaking work.
