All visitors are required to carry a passport that is valid for six months beyond the intended length of stay. You are required to have a minimum of two blank pages in your passport to enable the entry visa into South Africa to be issued.Please ensure that you have the correct visas for the countries you are visiting.

Border officials are not able to issue visas on the spot, therefore visas must be obtained in advance. Both the cost, currency, accepted method of payment, and type of visa (i.e., single, double or multiple entry) should be checked in advance to avoid any inconveniences and delays when entering countries or crossing borders. Please note some countries can change their visa requirements no warning.
