The Republic of South Africa, referred to as the "Rainbow Nation" due to its multicultural population, is one of the BRICS countries and is regarded as the economic motor in Africa’s southern region. Since its colonization by the Netherlands and Britain in the 17th and 18th centuries, this country has continuously attracted migrants from Europe and other parts of the world. Those moving to South Africa from neighboring countries are usually labor migrants searching for better prospects for the future.
