South African with dual nationality travelling to SA?

Posted on

It is important to note that, in accordance with the SA Citizenship Act, is an offense to travel to South Africa utilising a foreign passport if such a person has the right to make use of a South African passport. We, therefore, urge all South Africans with dual nationality, and who have the right to make use of an SA passport to ensure that such a travel document is always kept valid and up to date for travel purposes to South Africa.

Many South African-born citizens accept a second nationality through naturalization without seeking advice from the SA authorities first. In these instances, it is best to obtain written confirmation from the SA authorities that such a person no longer has the right to make use of a South African passport, which can then be shown at the SA port of entry avoiding any difficulty upon entering the country.

Breytenbach Immigration Consultants Ltd (BIC) have a dedicated South African Immigration Department and are available to assist with any SA immigration queries or applications. Please feel free to use the form below to contact us.
