What documentation do you need to visit South Africa?nighttime

IF you have a passport from the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the European Union, Singapore, Japan, Switzerland or Liechtenstein, you do not need a visa. If you are from any other country you need a visa and you should apply at least four weeks before your date of departure. Approach your nearest South African embassy or consulate to secure your visa.

Most countries have embassies or consulates in South Africa, usually located in the capital, Pretoria, a short drive north of Johannesburg. Johannesburg is the home of many consuls and commercial attachés.

See Contact numbers for embassies and consulates.

The telephone area code for Pretoria within the country is 012, and the area code for Johannesburg is 011. From outside South Africa dial +27 12 for Pretoria and +27 11 for Johannesburg. Pretoria is 35-45 minutes' drive from Johannesburg.

South Africans need to contact the Department of Home Affairs to apply for Identity and travel documents (passports):
