South Africa Visas for Indians will be offered in just 7 days said hub Head of Tourism South Africa Neliswa Nkani. He was speaking at the inaugural of the last leg of their yearly road show in Kolkata. Our aim is to increase the number of Indian tourists to South Africa by twice, he added.

We are working in partnership with the Consulate of South Africa for easing Visa procedures said Nkani. It is aimed to speed up applications to ensure quick processing in 5 to 7 days. Less time is being taken by us by most of our competitors that take around 30 days, said Nkani.
