How much does a tourist visa cost for the UK, USA, Australia, and most Schengen Zone countries? | Life


The visa application process in South Africa includes a load of paperwork, appointments made way in advance and a heavy fee.

South Africa has one of the world’s weakest passports, which means we often have to endure the indignity and expense of onerous visa applications.

Although there are a few visa-free destinations for South Africans and some e-visa options, many countries still require South Africans to pay upwards of R3 000 for a short-stay holiday visa.

The process is also seldom easy. Visa applications usually require an appointment, made long in advance, to visit a consulate or agency in person.

South Africans need to be in the know if we want to create a prosperous future. News24 has kept the country informed for 25 years, and we’re about to enter a new chapter of fearless journalism.
