Im going to work in UAE, Abu Dhabi for 30 months. Do I need to pay tax on or even declare my foreign income with SARS?

Do you plan on spending any time in South Africa over the next 30 months?

The contract will be for 30 months and I will visit SA once a year for about 2 weeks.

Based on the amount of time you will be in South Africa over the next 30 months, you will not be tax resident in South Africa. You therefore don't need to complete a SA tax return unless you earn income locally in SA as well, in which case you will need to complete a Tax Return and declare this income.
