I am a foreign national (New Zealand) based in South Africa on a work permit, working for a South African company. However all of my work is "offshore" in the DRC in the mining industry. I am away from South Africa for about 300 days per year for up to 60 days at a time. Can you please let me know if I qualify for the tax exemption on my salary. Thanks, Dan
