Extension of Visas for foreigners in South Africa

Foreigners in South Africa

The South African Department of Home Affairs has extended the concession for foreigners in South Africa.

Lawfully issued visas that expired from 15 February 2020 and during the lockdown will be deemed valid until 31 October 2020. This concession is an extension of the previous extension to 31 July 2020.  

The Department of Home Affairs also said that any person in South Africa, with a visa that expired after 15 February 2020, may be repatriated to their home country during this concession period, without that person being declared undesirable.
