SAMRA Fees for March 2021 to February 2022

Independent Membership Fee

R1700 ex VAT

Visa application letter confirming Independent Membership: SAMRA is the SAQA recognised, non-statutory professional body for market research. We are a voluntary membership association, and we do not conduct critical skills assessments or issue letters specifically for visa application purposes. For visa application purposes, we issue  a membership certificate as well as a letter confirming membership, provided that membership is activated and paid for in advance for the duration of the work visa being applied for, from date of application approval, instead of one year, as would otherwise be the case.

Organisation Membership Fees

To work out the fee for an organisation’s membership, add the Fee per Organisation and the Fee per Employee (multiplied by your headcount) that applies to your organisation together. All fees are given in South African Rand and exclude VAT. SAMRA is a registered VAT payer and VAT is charged where relevant.
