It is simple and straightforward to apply for a South Africa e-Visa from China – travelers just have to complete the online application form.
Before filling in the form, travelers must ensure they have the following:
- Chinese passport
- Email address
- Credit or debit card
The passport must be valid for at least 6 months from the expected date of arrival in South Africa.
The form asks applicants to input personal details and passport information, as well as to outline their plans to visit South Africa.
They must also answer questions related to health and security matters and upload a few supporting documents, which include:
- Proof of sufficient funds to cover expenses during the visit
- Confirmation of a return or onward travel ticket
- Yellow fever certificate
A yellow fever certificate is only necessary for travelers who have recently passed through the yellow fever belt of Africa or South America.
All applicants will be expected to ensure the personal and travel information is entered correctly before submitting the form, to avoid any unnecessary delays in processing.
Once the eVisa is confirmed, the applicant will be informed of its validity as well as the date by which they must enter South Africa.
