Interstate auctioneers working in SA
If you live interstate you can use the automatic mutual recognition process to work in SA under your interstate registration.
All real estate registrations are now digital and a physical card is not required. You can download your licence or registration to an Apple or Android smart phone or tablet using the mySAGOV app.
If there are situations where digital display is not possible - for example, no internet coverage or a faulty phone - CBS officers checking for compliance will use alternative methods to check you are appropriately registered.
