In South Africa, visas for tourists are actually available in two categories.

The standard short-term visit visa is granted for a period of three months, however this can be extended on one occasion by a further three months depending on the purpose of the extension and provided that an applicant applying for a South Africa visitor visa extension possesses a valid return air ticket.

Candidates wishing to apply for a South African visit visa will need to provide the following:

  • A valid passport with a minimum of six months remaining.
  • Passport sized photographs.
  • Evidence that they can support themselves financially throughout the time in the country
  • In addition, applicants must be considered to be of sound mind and have no criminal record.

The second South African visitor permit is known as the "extended visitor permit" and is designed primarily for those who wish to conduct research, study in South Africa, or pursue voluntary or charity work in the country.

This South African visa is valid for a period of up to three years and requires candidates to provide a range of supporting documents including divorce papers if applicable, a clean bill of health having undergone a medical examination and evidence of enough money to support their stay in South Africa.

In addition, like a standard visit visa for South Africa, applicants must not have a criminal record. It is important to note that this South African visa neither constitutes nor encompasses a work permit application and that those wishing to work will need to apply for a work permit separately.
