South Africa is a beautiful country and I would never get tired of visiting this country again and explore the different tourist spots in South Africa. 


For Philippine Passport holders / Filipinos, please be informed that they updated their requirements for the tourist or visitor's visa to South Africa as of September 3, 2015.

    1. Hi Fred, Cathay Pacific offers the cheapest rates Johannesburg. December is the best time to come since its their summer time. Oh, before the exchange rate was 7pesos to a 1 Rand. Now it is 4Pesos. So when you convert things to pesos in South Africa, they are almost the same price here in the Philippines. Specially the food! :) Happy New Year Fred!

  19. i guess one of the biggest challenge for backpackers to visit South Africa is the cost of transportation

  20. WOW WOW WOW CARAMBA! You've already flew all the way to South Africa? And yey, free of charge pala pag <29 days ang visit. I thought it's as expensive as USA or Australian Visa. Thanks for this informative post, South Africa is part of my bucketlist. :D

  26. hi angelo!

    first time ko mag tatravel going to south africa, and i dont know if my bank account is enough to accomodate myself there? how much is the show money? ano yung mga possible reason para di ma approve visa for first timer? thanks need some help

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hi there is no show money involved, do you have a sponsor? If not just provide them a certified copy of your bank statement. I am not sure but once they approve your visa, they may ask you for a bond of Php 30k but you can have it back when you return to the Philippines. Madaming dahilan for the the visa not to be approved but only they can tell.

      Delete
    2. Hi so the 30k bond only implies if you do not have a sponsor?

      Delete
    3. it is for all even if you have or you dont have sponsors

      Delete
  27. I was just about to ask about the 30k thing that I've heard from a friend. So totoo pala sya. I was really decided to go to South Africa this year I almost book my tickets! But got turned-off right away about that bond which I think is unnecessary. Do you mind sharing the logic behind it? Thanks! :)

    1. Hi Lizzie, to be honest I really don't have the exact answer to your question. It really is a big amount for a bond. Pero makukuha naman sya when you come back. Siguro its just to make sure that the person is coming back in the Phils.? I am sure someone would be able to read our conversation and give us another explanation as to why.As a tourist, I used my pocket money to pay for the bond, kaya wala na masyadong pang shopping. hehe

      Sorry Lizzie :)

  28. HI ANGELO,

    I would like to ask if after you submitted everything like your visa application and passport, is there any interview of the consular or he/she will be asking for additional requirements? And for the bond? so you gave a 30k before leaving the country and when you came back did you got it right away? Thanks :)

    ReplyDelete

    1. Hi Harold,

      Yes you have to submit everything to the consular office sa RCBC. No interview needed and if they needed more docs, they will let you know and request for it.

      For new applicants for tourists, they may ask for a 30K bond. When you arrived back, you will have to go back sa SA Embassy to request for the money which you get it after a few days either by bank transfer or personal. Good luck on your application! Good luck on your application Harold. Let me know how it goes ok?
