ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY

What is it?

Foreigners who are involved in the entertainment industry and will be travelling through South Africa to perform can apply for a long-term visitor’s visa for a period of up to 3 years.
  • The tour or performance must be confirmed by the organiser/host of the event in South Africa.
  • This visa can be renewed from South Africa without limit, but does not allow the holder to apply for a change of status to a different visa type while in South Africa.
  • Spouses and children can apply for matching dependant visas to accompany the main visa holder to South Africa.
  • This visa does not allow the holder to apply for permanent residence status.
  • This visa is only required for tours or performances longer than 3 months. Entertainers who will be visiting South Africa for period not exceeding 3 months can instead apply for authorisation to conduct work on a visitor’s visa in terms of section 11(2) of the Immigration Act (link to short-term work visa)
