Congo Visa

Democratic Republic of CONGO Visas Update

Visas for diplomats and state officials from South Africa and the Democratic Republic of Congo have been waived.

On Monday July 31, Minister of Home Affairs Professor Hlengiwe Mkhize and a DRC delegation led by Deputy Prime Minister Emmanuel Ramazani signed the waiver agreement.

The waiver will allow diplomats and state officials from both countries to travel freely between the two countries. “As members of SADC, we have committed ourselves, through the Protocol on Facilitation of Movement of Persons that we shall continuously collaborate with each other progressively to attain the goal of easing travel and expanding trade and co-operation,” Mkhize said.
