The South African Department of Home Affairs began piloting the South Africa eVisa scheme in 2019, with the aim of improving the visa application process for visitors to the country.
The South Africa eVisa for Nigerian nationals allows successful applicants to enter the country for short-term trips, without having to get a visa from an embassy or consulate.
Ahead of their tourism or business visit to South Africa, Nigerian applicants can easily obtain an eVisa via an online application portal.
Short-term travel to South Africa from Nigeria has become much easier for Nigerians as they no longer have to apply for a consular visa.
Instead, they can apply for the eVisa on any internet-enabled computer from the comfort of their own home or office in a matter of minutes.
The online visa for South Africa is valid for a single entry or multiple entries for varying lengths of stay, depending on the requirements of the traveler.
