I hope you all are doing great.
I created my profile a few days ago but still no order, I know it takes time so I planned to get my outside Upwork clients there using the Direct Contract option.
My Question is Can a client who comes by direct contract have the ability to give me a review?
I have clients outside of Upwork so I want them to hire me by this contract so that my Upwork profile gets some rating as well.

Then you need to use regular contracts.
Can someone please help me out here. I'm looking at a new client in South Africa and would like to set up a Direct Contract with them via Upwork (much easier as it keeps all of my earningsin a single place). Before suggesting this to my client, I want to know if they actually can. The documentation does not specify if South Africa is an available country, and my client would only find this out by responding to the invitiation and attempting to accept the contract. I do not want them to see that it's not available in South Africa after I've suggested this to them.

If they have a credit card that works worldwide/paypal it should work.
Direct Contracts are only available to freelancers and their clients in certain countries. If you attempt to sign up and you or your client are not eligible due to the country you live in, you'll see this message: "We're sorry to inform you that Direct Contracts are currently not available in your country.".
I have sent the contract to my client to accept it and he accepted the contract last friday. Today it's 5th day and yet my contract hasn't funded in 5 days. I have contacted some agents in customer supp but they only refer to direct contract dept and nothing else.
