New Zealanders now need visa to travel to South Africa!
Travellers from New Zealand will soon need a visa to enter South Africa. The new requirements for New Zealanders will come into force on 16 January 2017. South Africa's decision to introduce new visa restrictions follows New Zealand's introduction of visa requirements for all South African nationals wishing to travel there with effect from 21 November 2016. Kiwis travelling to South Africa after 16 January 2017 will have to obtain a visa from the South African High Commission in Wellington prior to travelling.
