Visa Information

Citizens of Commonwealth countries generally do not require a visa to visit Swaziland. However, it is advisable that you ensure that you are in possession of a valid passport and visa (where applicable).

Many visitors to Swaziland require a Visa to enter South Africa, even if it’s just in transit. Please verify if you require one. If you are travelling with children under 18, you require extra documents to cross the South African border. Information on Visa and other immigration requirements can be found on the South African Department of Home Affairs website.
