South Africa’s Department of Home Affairs has announced that New Zealand visitors will no longer require visas to travel to South Africa.
The visa exemption for New Zealand passport holders will come into effect on 15 August 2019. The exemption will allow New Zealand passport holders to enter South Africa for a period of 90 days or fewer without a visa for holiday or business visits. The exemption will also apply to New Zealand passport holders transiting through South Africa.
New Zealanders requiring further information regarding South African immigration and visa policies should contact the South African High Commission in Wellington or the South African Department of Home Affairs.
