Important note: iVisa cannot provide the South African eVisa yet, but we advise staying alert because this product will be launched very soon

In November 2019, The South African government mentioned that they would probably launch the eVisa system. Unfortunately, we still don't have information at this point because the official guidelines haven't been released to the public yet. All we can do is wait for the South African government to release more information about it soon. As a result, we do not know if Indian citizens will be eligible for a South Africa eVisa, as the list of eligible nationalities is not available yet.

Even so, we have a few details about the South Africa eVisa that may interest you.
