Ghana is now on South Africa’s e-visa list.
Travelling Ghanaians can, therefore, henceforth, apply for South African visas online.
This saves time, since travellers need not throng the South African High Commission for the visa.
A statement issued by the High Commission in Accra on Thursday, 28 September 2023, said: "The High Commission of the Republic of South Africa wishes to inform that Ghana has been added by the Government of the Republic of South Africa on the E-Visa list, which means that Ghanaian nationals can apply online for visas to South Africa without visiting the High Commission.”
"The information is available on the portal of the Department of Home Affairs of the Republic of South Africa", the statement said, adding: "Ghanaians are urged to visit the following website www.dha.gov.za to obtain more information".
The High Commission, however, noted that the normal requirements such as passport details, a letter of invitation/proof of accommodation and a bank statement would be verified on arrival at the point of entry.
