Starting November, visitors to South Africa will be able to apply for visas online when the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) launches a pilot scheme for the e-visa system.

This will make travel much easier for foreign tourists.

Travellers will now be able to apply for their travel documents from the comfort of their homes, which was especially problematic for visitors from India and China.  

South African travel news site Traveller24 reports that the country has been rolling out much-needed reforms to its visa regime, including visa-free entry for residents of the following countries:

  • New Zealand
  • Qatar
  • Saudi Arabia
  • The United Arab Emirates (UAE)

Visa waivers are also in the pipeline for Ghana, Cuba, and São Tomé and Príncipe.

Visa requirements have also been simplified for China and India.
