I am a South Africa citizen and would like to receive a monetary gift from my sister who is a UK citizen only - is there any tax implication for me?

Donations tax is payable by the donor and not the recipient - therefore there are no tax implications for you, however you need to disclose it in your tax return (ITR12) as an "amount not considered taxable".
Furthermore, there is no donations tax payable on donations from a foreign resident to a SA resident provided the funds donated is from a foreign source (i.e from work your sister has performed in the UK).
Please read our blog on Donations Tax for further clarification.
