On entry to South Africa, a visitor’s permit is required by international travellers who have permanent residence outside South Africa and who wish to visit the country on a temporary basis for tourism or business purposes for a period of 90 days or less. Adaptation Futures 2018 will provide you with a visa invitation letter on payment of registration, if required. The permit’s period of validity is calculated from the date of entry into the country. Requirements for visitor’s visas differ from country to country and each application is treated as an individual case. Please make enquiries with your nearest South African mission or consulate to see if you need to apply for a visa.
