IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR TRAVELLERS TO SOUTH AFRICA.

Please note that with immediate effect, anyone travelling to South Africa must have 2 consecutive blank pages in their passport which lie side by side when the passport is open (i.e. a left and a right hand page).


Passports must also be valid for at least 6 months after the date of travel. Passengers travelling to South Africa with passports which do not comply with these requirements, will either be stopped from boarding the aircraft or risk deportation upon arrival in South Africa. In addition, a parent travelling with children, WITHOUT the other parent, will need a letter of consent from the absent parent. The police must certify the letter of consent.

For visas, immunisation requirements and other vital information to do with travel in Southern / East Africa and the Indian Ocean Islands you will need to contact the nearest consulate for the countries you wish to visit. Visa and entry / exit requirements change constantly and no notice is given of any updates. Alternately, contact a reputable visa service company who can assist you with all the details.
