Applicants must provide a copy of their passport as well as the results of an English language test or signed document from an academic institution or English language school. The medical form should be filled out completely. Tetanus is a REQUIRED immunization.

BSA requires SCOUTS SA to conduct interviews with all applicants and to sign the forms of the selected applicants. Send ALL of the requested materials and forms to the SSA International Committee for review the latest by 10 January 2020. Email address is international@scouts.org.za  Applicants will be interviewed and – if selected – your complete application will be signed by SSA and forwarded to BSA.
