South Africa will soon launch a new eVisa which will be a requirement for Dutch citizens who want to visit the country. The South Africa eVisa will be quick and simple to apply for. Travelers from the Netherlands and other eligible countries will be able to get their South Africa e-visa by just completing the online form and pay a fee using a credit or debit card.
South Africa is already a popular destination for Dutch travelers. Vast nature reserves, incredible biodiversity, and 2,500km of golden coastlines are just a few of the highlights. The South Africa eVisa for Dutch travelers will help to ensure that visitors are able to quickly obtain travel authorization for their trip with minimal hassle.
South Africa Visa Requirements for Dutch Citizens
Dozens of countries have decided to launch electronic visas over the last couple of years in an attempt to expedite bureaucracy and boost tourism. The South Africa visa requirements for citizens from the Netherlands will be very similar to those of other similar eVisa programs. Dutch travelers will need to do the following:
- Complete the online South Africa eVisa application form
- Provide a copy of a valid Dutch passport
- Pay the eVisa fee using a credit or debit card
Those are the basic visa requirements though there will probably be more when the eVisa is available. There could be additional documentation requirements such as passport photos and specific documents for children.
At the moment, Dutch citizens can visit South Africa for up to 90 days without obtaining any type of visa. For longer stays, it is necessary to go to a South African embassy or consulate to submit an application. There are numerous different types of South African visas which are designed for different purposes, such as work and study visas, so you should check which one applies to your specific situation.
Completing the South Africa eVisa Application
The application for the South African visa for citizens of the Netherlands has not been finalized yet. It will include a series of questions which will require applicants to enter information such the traveler’s full name, address, date of birth, passport details, and other background information.
It will be essential to answer all the questions fully, accurately, and openly. Unanswered questions and errors will lead to delays in the process. All the answers will be checked against security databases so missing information could also lead to complications.
The vast majority of applications will be quickly processed. Approved eVisas will be sent to travelers by email (to the email address provided on the application form).
