I am a South African resident working and living in Namibia ie I am permanently residing in Namibia. I get two Salaries one is from a Namibian company, taxed in Namibia and paid into a South African account. The other is paid from a Swiss company to my SA account. My question is do I pay tax on the Swiss income in SA and second when declaring the Namibian and Swiss amounts in my tax return how do I categorize them?

If you meet the requirements for foreign exempt income then you won't be subject to tax in South Africa.
