Visitors entering South Africa must possess a valid passport. Most passport holders need visas to enter the country, but citizens of some states are exempt from this. Check with a travel agent or the nearest South African representative to determine if one is needed. More detailed information concerning special visa arrangements for delegates to WTSA-08 will be made available on the host country website in the near future. Visas should be obtained in the tourist's own country and will not be issued in South Africa. To assist in obtaining a Visa, a copy of the invitation letter or registration confirmation letter for WTSA-08 should accompany the visa application.
A multiple-entry visa is needed if visitors intend to travel to and from neighbouring countries during the time in which the visa is valid.
Visitors from Yellow Fever endemic countries must have proof of current Yellow Fever inoculation.
Upon arrival, visitors must present proof that they have enough money to support themselves and must possess a valid return ticket or enough money to purchase one.
- Please remember that all passports should be valid for 6 months after the departure date from the country visited and have 3 blank pages. Please ensure that ALL NECESSARY VISAS and health certificates have been obtained.
