Pernis was selected for South Africa after making an encouraging start to his career at Dundee United. He will provide back-up for Slovakian number one Jan Mucha.
He arrived in Scotland from Zilina in December, having been persuaded to sign a pre-contract agreement by boss Craig Levein. Just a week later Levein quit his post to take over as Scotland manager.
Pernis was given his debut against Partick Thistle in January and kept his place for the rest of the season. He was a virtual spectator as the Tangerines won the Scottish Cup final, defeating Ross County 3-0.
