UNUSED VISA PAGE FOR SOUTH AFRICA

The following information was received from the Department of Home Affairs regarding the one unused visa page requirement:
Since the time of the new Immigration Act of 2002 and its amendment in 2005, the requirement in terms of the Immigration Regulations 2 (1)(e) a passport shall contain at least one unused visa page when presenting the passport for purposes of endorsing a visa or permit. See the attached Passport Control Instruction issued in 2004.
The above requirement fits well with nationals of countries which are exempted for 30 or 90 days for holiday, transit or business visits. But for countries that required a visa before travelling to South Africa, the applicant requires to have TWO blank pages for the purpose of issuing a visa on one page and entry at the port of entry when entering South Africa.
Passports and passport replacing documents of all non-South African nationals must contain at least one (1) unused visa page for entry/departure endorsements by South African Immigration Service. Please note that this does not include the page reserved for Observations or Amendments and Endorsements. DOWNLOAD THE PDF HERE
