South Africa - Rural - Manguzi Hospital

Visa:
               a)   Visitors to South Africa for tourism, short business meetings, or those in transit do not require visas for stays
                     of up to 90 days. It is strongly suggested that all travelers check the latest requirements with the nearest
                     South African Embassy or Consulate before traveling.
               b)   Please Note: South African law requires travelers to have one (1) totally blank (unstamped) visa page in their 
                     passport in order to enter the country. In practice, however, travelers often need to have more than one blank page.
                     There have been numerous instances in which South African immigration officers required travelers to have two (2) fully blank
                     pages. Some travelers have been refused entry and returned to their point of origin.
