I'm a French citizen, resident with work permit. I pay a Medical Aid in France, for me and 3 other persons. Can I get a deduction?

If you pay tax in SA you are allowed to use your foreign medical aid as a deduction if that enables you to use the medical aid here in SA (and you don't claim any tax benefit for it in France).
