Visa South Africa

South Africa, like any other country in the world, holds the sovereign right to determine who is entitled to enter its territory. South Africa enjoys the right to exempt designated foreign countries from having standard South Africa visa requirements to enter its territory as a visitor for the purposes of holiday.

If an applicant is not eligible for a ‘port of entry’ visa as described above, then a tourist visa or temporary residency visa will need to be applied for before entering the country.

Visa for South Africa

Despite having a visa endorsed in the applicant’s passport for entry into South Africa, it does not guarantee automatic admission into its territory – especially if an applicant has been deported previously, declared undesirable or is a prohibited person.

If you are unsure as to whether your country of citizenship is visa exempt or you are worried about entering South Africa due to a previous overstay, contact us and we’ll advise you.
