Who is allowed to travel to south africa

Requirements for travel to Africa

Of course, you must have your passport in force before traveling to South Africa, a document that must meet these two requirements: It must have an expiration date of at least 30 days after the date of departure from the country and have 2 blank pages.

Malaria treatment is advisable if you are going to visit risk areas, located in the northeast of the country, such as the Kruger Park. In the big cities there is no risk of being bitten by the mosquito that transmits the disease.

Being located in the southern hemisphere, the seasons in South Africa are the opposite of those in Europe. Winter in South Africa, which runs from June to September, is dry and not too cold. This is the best time to enjoy the wildlife. The vegetation is less lush and the animals concentrate on the rivers to drink. In addition, the southern whale begins to reach the coast. It is also a good season for outdoor activities and sports.

The South African spring is from September to November. Temperatures rise during the day. It is a season that allows us to see beautiful landscapes full of flowers, such as those of the West Coast National Park, about 90 kilometers from Cape Town.

Vaccinations to enter South Africa

Citizens of other countries please check the list of visa exempt countries. If the name of your country does not appear in such list, it means that you must apply for an entry visa. There are also countries exempt from visa if the stay in South Africa does not exceed 30 (thirty) days.

There are countries that require a visa to enter South Africa but are exempt from consular fees, e.g. India, Colombia, Mexico, etc. Please refer to the list of countries that require consular fees and if your country is not on this list, it means that you do not have to pay the visa fee.

(Note: If your visit exceeds 90 days or you are traveling to South Africa to study or work, you must apply for a temporary residence visa instead of a visitor’s visa. The requirements for temporary residence are not the same as those for a visitor’s visa.

A Yellow Fever vaccination certificate is required for all Argentine citizens as Argentina has been declared a Yellow Fever endemic country by the WHO (World Health Organization).

Visa South 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 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 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 differ 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.
