					South Africa Visa Requirements



Every country has the sovereign right to decide who may or may not enter its
territory. Possession of a visa does not guarantee automatic admission to the
Republic. It only authorizes the holder to proceed to the Republic to report to an
immigration officer at a port of entry for the purpose of being examined as to
his/her ability or otherwise, to comply with the (entry) re quirements of the Act.

The purpose of a visa on the one hand is to ensure proper screening of applicants so
that undesirable persons are not admitted to the Republic and on the other hand to
facilitate the entry of approved applicants at South African ports of entry. Visas
provide immigration officers with the necessary information to ensure that
applicants are admitted for the correct purpose and pe riod into the RSA. Please
note that nationals who are exempt from the South African visa require ment are
only exempt for the purposes of holiday, business and transit and still require visas
for other purposes, e g for medical purposes.
