South Africa considers long-term multiple entry visa to boost tourism

South Africa government is considering introducing a new long-term multiple-entry visa to boost tourism.

National Treasury said on Wednesday this was done as part of efforts to accelerate immigration reforms which would in the long run also reduce the cost of doing business.

"Immigration reforms to speed visa processing and boost tourism are under consideration.

"These include a long-term multiple entry visa that would be available to frequent travellers, business people and academics, and visas on arrival for some categories of travellers," said National Treasury as the Medium Term Budget Policy Statement (MTBPS) was tabled in Parliament.

Since January, 10-year multiple-entry business visas have been available to visitors from Brazil, Russia, India and China.

The announcement by National Treasury was part of highlighting measures that are under consideration to strengthen the policy of the country certainty in immigration, mining and communications.

"Policy uncertainty in any economy undermines confidence, with consequences for investment and job creation. Accordingly, government is taking steps to strengthen policy certainty in several key areas."
