What is it?

Foreign artists who wish to write, paint or sculpt in South Africa can apply for a long-term visitor’s visa for a period of up to 3 years.
  • The artist must submit a portfolio of their previous work.
  • Artists should provide proof of funding from third-party sponsors or demonstrate sufficient private funds to sustain themselves in South Africa for the duration of the visa.
  • 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.
