E-visa
The promise of e-visas was first officially introduced in 2018. The Tourism Business Council says SA govt hasn't been swift enough.

The Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA) says the Department of Home Affairs (DHA) has assured them that the first phase of the e-visa system will be piloted at the start of April.

The council's CEO Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwa says he was told that the e-visas would be launched in New Zealand from next month.

The promise of e-visas was first officially introduced in 2018, but Tshivhengwa says the government has not been swift enough.

He says the TBCSA has asked to witness a demonstration of the e-visa system to see how it works.

We've been having a series of meeting with the DHA.

It shouldn't have taken us this long to apply the system.
