If you’ve ever travelled to Europe then you will no doubt have complained about what a mission it is to get a visa and having to pay for it. Well South Africans may soon be exempt from needing a visa to travel to the European Union if current talks between SA Home Affairs and the EU are successful.
That would be very cool for frequent travellers to Europe.
“Amongst the issues discussed were the feasibility of multiple-entry visas for SA business people to the EU and full exemptions for South African leisure travellers. Minister Gigaba said: “We discussed future arrangements for visa exemptions for ordinary SA passport holders in the EU.” [iol]
Don’t get your hope up too high though. This is the SA government we’re talking about hey.
