Take Advantage of the New South African E-Visa System

When President Cyril Ramaphosa of South Africa visited the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) to announce the date the country’s e-visa system would be launched, he added that the eVisa system would boost South Africa’s economic growth as well as bring about more economic opportunities for the nation.

The announcement of the launch date for the long-awaited e-Visas system by the President did not only cause an outbreak of excitement among staffs at the DHA office in Pretoria, but also brought excitement to tourists who see it as an opportunity to process their travel documents to South Africa faster, easily, and conveniently.  

The e-Visa system, which will be launched in November 2019, is meant for South Africans who want to travel abroad and for international tourists who want to come to South Africa, said Ramaphosa. The biometrics capturing for eVisa processing can be easily done online rather than having to visit the embassy, a process that saves both money and time. According to Ramaphosa:

The new changes to our visa system are meant to make it easier for tourists to experience our country and contribute to our economic growth and development through their purchase of goods and services.

Some officials of Home Affairs demonstrated how the new South African e-visa system works and the President added that he hoped this “topnotch” eVisa system would attract lots of people into South Africa and ensure economic growth. He said:

Countries that benefit the most from increased visitor flows and revenue are countries that have liberal visa regimes that nevertheless ensure that they are not exposed to undue risk. We want to be such a country.

He added that other countries have met with him to improve the visa regime of South Africa so as to get more tourists. President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the launching of the e-Visa system in February 2019 during his “State of the Nation” Address.

The President appealed to the staff and management of Home affairs to treat anyone who seeks refuge in South Africa with respect and dignity and avoid being corrupt. He said:

I want you to deal with them [eVisa applicants] with care. You are all occupying very important positions, I want you to continue with your dedication.

He stated that the Department of Home Affairs has gone from being “the department of horror affairs back to the Department of Home Affairs” but there are still more works to be done.
