Passport holders who are exempt from Visas for South Africa

Citizens of the countries listed below can enter South Africa without a visa for limited periods, but subject to terms and conditions. It will be noted that there are nationalities who can enter for up to 90 days visa-free and other nationalities who can enter for up to 30 days visa-free.

It is however always a prudent measure for all foreigners intending to enter South Africa to check if a visitor’s visa is required or aspects of entry beforehand, as there could be associative changes that may affect admittance.
