United Kingdom Tourist Visa For South Africa (90 Day Visa Free Period)

This page provides visa information for UK Citizens wanting to travel to South Africa.

Important Information

British Citizens do not require a visa for stays of up to 90 days, but your passport should have at least 30 days validity beyond your intended exit from the country. However, some immigration officials still request that a passport should have at least 6 months validity on the date of entry to South Africa. To avoid problems at the airport on arrival we recommend you meet this requirement.
