SA reviews visa regulations to boost tourism

The review of South Africa’s visa regulations is one of the integral measures to be taken in an attempt to resuscitate the country’s stressed economy, President Cyril Ramaphosa said on Friday, Northglen News reports.

The decision is among a range of measures that cabinet has agreed to implement to decisively and rapidly accelerate the implementation of key economic reforms that will unlock greater investment in important growth sectors, the President said.

“Within the next few months, amendments will be made to regulations on the travel of minors, the list of countries requiring visas to enter South Africa will be reviewed, an e-visas pilot will be implemented and the visa requirements for highly skilled foreigners will be revised,” the President said.

He said the measures have the potential to boost tourism and make business travel a lot more conducive.

“Tourism continues to be a great job creator and through these measures, we are confident that many more tourists will visit South Africa.”

President Ramaphosa said he had personally received complaints about the country’s stringent visa regulations from Chinese President Xi Jinping during his State visit to South Africa in July.
