South Africa was the home of one of the most famous people in the world, Nelson Mandela, and having sadly passed away, the world is mourning the loss of a great promoter for peace. No country will have felt the loss of his presence more than his home, so as a tribute to the great man, here is a travel guide of the country where he was once president.
Most people will not require a visa to gain entry to South Africa, with citizens of over 20 countries such as Australia, Holland, Japan, Brazil and the UK getting a 90 day visa upon arrival. Other citizens from countries such as Turkey, Thailand, Malaysia and Bolivia are only able to get a 30 day visa on their arrival.
If you find that you wish to stay longer than your initial visa, then it is a simple process of extending it within the country by visiting one of the immigration offices in the major cities. However, you should remember that you will not be allowed to enter the country without proof of having a return flight leaving South Africa, so make sure you bring it with you to the airport.
