Visa General Information

Certain nationalities require a visa or visitor’s permit on entry to South Africa. The period of validity of the permit is calculated from the date of entry into the country and will be set out under the heading “conditions” on the visa label.

Please ensure that you apply for the correct visa/permit. Entry into the country may be refused if the purpose of the visit is not correctly stated. Requirements for visitor visas differ from country to country (click here to see which countries are currently exempt**), and the requirements are subject to change. Each application is treated individually and requires an appointment with your nearest South African consulate.


There is a fee charged for processing a visa, so you should check beforehand what this will be (it differs from country to country.) The fee is payable in different currencies in different countries.


Foreigners with work permits or permit residence in neighboring countries who transit through South Africa to their places of employment or residence are not subject to the transit visa, provided they are in possession of proof of their status.
