WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SOUTH AFRICAN VISAS
You need to apply for a tourist or business visa if you are visiting the country for up-to, or less than 90 days. You will be required to fill out the BI-1756 Form, which you will find here. South African visas are generally easy to obtain.
To apply, visit a South African embassy or consulate, who will issue the visa. It is very important that you state the exact reason for visiting in writing and as clearly as possible, as bureaucratic mistakes can happen.
Visas are not issued at point of entry.
You need to provide financial statements to prove that you have the means to visit the country for the duration of your stay.
In order to prevent child trafficking and kidnapping of children, you must provide the following information prior to travelling with children under the age of 18 years:
Unabridged birth certificate
Proof of guardianship or custody of the child
If travelling unaccompanied, consent needs to be given in writing
Incredible Experiences will sort out the details of your application for a smoother process and advise you of whether you require a visa or not.
