Spain Visa Information for
South African Residents
Italy is part of the borderless region known as the Schengen Area and South African passport holders require a Schengen visa in order to enter Italy. A passport valid for at least three months from your departure is required and a visa will only be issued if blank pages are available. Requirements for the procurement of a visa are subject to change but application requirements include round-trip travel itinerary specifying entry and exit dates from the Schengen state and proof of funds to support yourself during your stay (approximately $50 USD per day).
Capago is the only intermediary recognised and authorised to process visa applications on behalf of the Italian Consulate in South Africa and they have visa application centres in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Durban and Pretoria.
