Foreign nationals that are citizens from visa exempt countries will be issued with a visitors visa when they present their passport to immigration officials at a port of entry in South Africa.
Foreign nationals holding citizenship from countries that are not visa exempt must apply for a visitors visa from their closest South African Embassy.
The visitors visa is renewable in South Africa. The maximum time a foreign national can remain in South Africa on avisitors visa is 180 days.
The visitors visa is for the purposes of a temporary stay and is limited to tourism related activities.
Staying for longer?
Immigration amendments effective May 2014 no longer allow foreign nationals to apply for a different visa while on avisitors visa in South Africa. The foreign national must apply for the correct visa prior to arrival in South Africa or return to their country of residence and apply for the correct visa.
