Traveling in Africa
If you are a citizen of another country and want to travel to South Africa, then you need a visa. The “visitor” visa is for international travelers who reside permanently outside of South Africa. It is also for those who wish to visit the country on a more temporary basis for tourism or business purposes. But it does not last forever. Once you get it, the visa is valid for no more than 90 days.
So, now you are in the country. While you are here, the visa is considered a visitor’s permit. The period of validity of the permit is counted from the date you arrived and will be stated under the heading “conditions” on the visa label.
It is important to make sure that you apply for the correct visa or permit. Otherwise, entry into the country may be refused if the purpose of the visit is not stated correctly.
Depending on where you are from, visa requirements are different from country to country and are subject to change. Each application is treated as an individual case, so you should inquire at the nearest South African consulate or mission abroad or any Department of Home Affairs office to see if you are even supposed to apply for a visa.

As a volunteer we have already sent you and you know what your basic expenses will be, but you should calculate and plan your expenses for solidarity trips. If you want we can help you with this and guide you.
