Making sense of South Africa’s visa regulations is not an easy task. The legislation is divided into different categories, with individual qualifying criteria for each visa type. This is not to mention the numerous sections and subsections!
Even if you do manage to make sense of it all, there is always the chance that Home Affairs will make changes as soon as you do. Moreover, Home Affairs issues new directives on an ongoing basis which members of the public may or may not be aware of.
