If you’re coming to South Africa on holiday for less than 90 days, you won’t need a visa if you’re hold a passport from a visa exempt country. If not, you have to apply for a Visitor Visa – a South African visitor visa allows a non-visa exempt foreign national to visit South Africa.
Here are two other South African visa types that you may need regardless of whether you are from a visa exempt country or not:
A South African study visa allows a foreign national to reside in the Republic whilst studying at a South African institution of primary, secondary or tertiary education.
A South African volunteer visa may be issued to a foreign national involved in unpaid volunteer or charity work within the country.
