South Africa: E-Visas a Victory for Tourism and Job Creation
The DA's campaign calling for the introduction of electronic visas to make it easier for tourists to come to South Africa has finally paid off. According to a reply to DA parliamentary question, the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) confirmed that the first phase of the e-visa system will be piloted by the 31st of March 2019.
The reply indicated that the rollout of phase one of the e-visa system will be at a foreign mission, embassy or local DHA office yet to be determined.
The pilot phase will initially cover temporary residence visas, adjudication of temporary residence visas, applications for waivers, applicant notifications and biometric details.
The DA has submitted several motions in Parliament calling for the introduction of e-visas, their benefits and the tourism industry's support for their introduction. Despite its clear merits, the DHA was initially strongly opposed to the idea.
