Essentials in South Africa

When visiting South Africa, passports must be valid for at least 30 days after the intended date of departure, and a return ticket is required for all foreign nationals. Most developed countries, barring some EU countries, do not need visas for visits of up to 90 days for business and tourist purposes. Inoculation against diphtheria, hepatitis A and tetanus is advised, and dependent on the region and time of year, so too is inoculation against malaria. Water is considered safe to drink in all urban areas. Sometimes vaccinations against tuberculosis and hepatitis B are recommended, but this is only for those visiting high-risk areas. If unsure, medical advice should be sought well before departure. A valid yellow fever certificate for visitors from infected countries must be produced on arrival into the country.
