HiWelcome to Just Answer!! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to assist you.
You have to have one of the following:
1. A permanent residence permit due to the fact that her husband is a SA Citizen or
2. A work permit or
3. A SA ID book (new one off course)
If she cannot give you any of the above, she cannot be LEGALLY employed, not even in the interim. You can be fined if caught and she will not be covered by any Labour Law legislation or UIF if you decide to employ her.
You have to refer her to Home Affairs for her to get a work permit to cover yourself.
In terms of item 1. in your list, a permanent residence permit, must that be Her permit in her name, not the husband's permit?
She will qualify for such a permit if he is a citizen. It does have to be in HER name however, and not his name.
