South Africa Visitor Visa in Nigeria

SA Visitor Visa is available for Nigerians who wish to visit South Africa temporarily. This visit could be for tourism or even for business. The visa is usually valid for three months (90 days) or less.

What Does Your SA Visitor Visa Means?

SA visitor visa means that South Africa’s diplomatic missions in Nigeria have reviewed your visitor visa application and have determined that you are eligible to enter the Republic of South Africa for a visit, not more than 90 days or less.

The Visitor Visa that is issued to you by South Africa’s diplomatic mission in Nigeria allows you to travel to a South African port of entry such as O.R. Tambo International Airport. It is at the airport that a South African immigration officer will interview you to determine the genuineness of your visit and ultimately decide whether you will be allowed to enter South Africa. She will also decide how long you can stay for that specific visit. Bear in mind that as a visitor in South Africa, you are only allowed to remain a visitor! You must not take on any other activity such as study.
