South Africa – Update on Transfers Valid Temporary Residence Visas

As previously reported, the Department of Home Affairs recently announced that it was no longer honoring or transferring valid Temporary Residence Visas endorsed in expired passports. However the South African government has decided to put this action on hold.

Foreign nationals may continue to use their expired passport containing the South African visa. Foreign nationals in South Africa may have their visa transferred to their new passport, rather than obtaining a new visa.
