South Africa’s Home Affairs Minister, Dr. Aaron Motsoaledi in his statement, disclosed that out of the 193 countries who are member states of the United Nations, the Department has granted visa-free status to 75 countries.
“Out of the 193 countries who are member states of the United Nations, the Department has granted visa-free status to 75 countries. 16 are in our [African] continent and are SADC members and 59 are from all over the world.”
He further revealed they are still running a check on countries who might make the list; Nigeria, India and China, even though their combined populations make up close to 30% of the world’s population.
“We will immediately enter into discussions with them about how a visa-free regime will work. We still have some homework to do for 3 countries whose combined populations make up close to 30% of the world’s population i.e. China, India and Nigeria,” the statement added.”
Today, we wish to announce an addition to our visa – free countries.
