I am currently living outside of South Africa. Am I able to deposit money with a South African bank and at what rate will my interest earnings be taxed at? Am I able to withdraw the money easily again from South Africa?

As a non resident and if you are out of SA for more than 183 days then the interest will be exempt from tax.
