However KNOX won't be added to the international variant of the S3. Samsung has already confirmed this a long time ago so the feature being requested by the OP is not possible.

EDIT:

It may still come in the future according to an article of sammobile.

Thanks!
So basically if I just wanna try the Know app, I must upgrade to 4.3, getting the whole Know Bootloader thing.. ?
I just wanna try it.... But I dont wanna have a device that will have issues with working with Odin, downgrading etc

So you mean that some 4.3 stock roms has Knox and some does not have? I also heard the same.

So far the 4.3 update for the international variant of the S III does not have KNOX whereas the LTE variant have it. Same goes for the international variant of Note II. So the possibility of KNOX being included in our devices is still possible in a future update.

The Killer with Knox is no way back once the efuse is blown it cannot be repaired and warranty is void .
