South African Visa Requirements
(Please read carefully and retain for your information)
A visa only enables the holder to proceed to a port of entry before the expiry date of the visa. The holder must comply with the applicable law, regulations and the following entry requirements of the Republic of South Africa.
No fixed travel arrangements should be made prior to the issuance of the visa and Five (5) working days should be allowed for processing from receipt of the application. PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE MISSION ENQUIRING THE PROGRESS OF YOUR APPLICATION UNTIL AT LEAST FIVE (5) WORKING DAYS AFTER THE MISSION HAS RECEIVED YOUR APPLICATION.
Entry will not be permitted on a one-way flight ticket, unless the person is in possession of a valid Temporary Work/Study Permit, Permanent Residence Permit or an appropriate visa. Visitors wishing to travel into South Africa on a one-way flight ticket, require a visa and a repatriation guarantee deposit of 1500.00 AUD lodged with this Mission. The deposit is refunded on application and on producing the original receipt once the person traveling has left South Africa. Once the visa is issued, entry is to be made before the expiry date of the visa. Normal visa fees are applicable.
The prescribed visa fee is NOT payable for visa endorsement on DIPLOMATIC or OFFICIAL passports.
Payment must be in Australian Dollars (AUD) made out to the “South African High Commission” by way of Postal Money Order or Bank Cheque. Personal cheques or credit cards are NOT accepted.
