South African Visa Requirements for Nigeria (2017 Update)

Sequel to my previous post on South African Visa requirements, this post is an update for 2017 requirements.

All the application requirements with regards to documents remain the same as those required in 2016. On this note I strongly recommend you view my previous post.

**Keep in mind that this information is valid as at April 2017 and subject to changes**.

I hope this post has been helpful and it it is, please remember to share. Also check out my post on visa application tips.

    • Hello Duke and thank you for reading.
      You are not alone. This delayed response has become a common problem in the past few months. I recommend that be patient a little longer or seek clarification at the center where you submitted your application. Good luck


    • I’ll be honest and say I don’t know. The time period is rather short but you never know. My advice is : submit your application regardless. It might come through.
