Conversion of a South African Pilots Licence

With an South African ATPL is it possible to fly in Asia and Middle East? If not, what are the requirements for the conversion?

I am about to start my license at a flight school in Cape Town and want to know with this license would it be recognized outside of South Africa? And If not how can I go about in working within the Middle East and Asia?

If you work one of the Asian or Middle Eastern Airline and you know about this. Please do help me.

Thank you in Advanced

They accept licenses from all ICAO states (which country isn't an ICAO state anyway) but they also have other requirements before you can even apply. For example this is from the Etihad careers website for A320 FO (non-rated) job.


- A minimum of 2500 hours total flying time.
- A minimum of 1500 hours on multi crew,glass cockpit or high performance military jet
- ICAO current and unrestricted ATPL. We do not accept Frozen ATPL unless held by a UAE citizen.
- Unrestricted, current Class 1 medical.
- Maximum age limit is 50 years old.
- English Language Fluency ( written and verbal ) Level 4 or better
- In case of hours accumalated on flights with inflight relief, 75% of the total hours shall be counted towards the required minimums.
