New visa requirements for South Africa

09 July 2009

From today, visitors to the United Kingdom from South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland will only be able to travel with a visa.

Visitors will now be fingerprinted and checked against watch-lists before being issued with a visa to travel. The new rules were introduced to counter passport and identity fraud, and follow Britain's first global review of who needs a visa to come to the United Kingdom for a short-term visit.

Please contact us for any further information as providing the correct type of supporting evidence and meeting the specific immigration requirements will be key factors in the ECO' s assessment of your application.
