You'd like to volunteer in South Africa and you don't know what Visa to apply for?Well, there are two possibilities for volunteers in South Africa.
If you are planning to work as a volunteer for up to 6 months you can do so on a holiday visa (if you are a resident in the USA or Europe). You will need to apply for an initial
period of up to 3 months, and can apply for an extension of your visa once you are in South Africa. In total you can then stay for up to 6 months. Your second option is to simply
apply for a Volunteer Permit, meaning a temporary residence permit. This type of visa is perfect for short and long term volunteers and allows you to stay for a much longer period
Please make sure to discuss the visa type with your organization and the embassy or consulate, as the type of visa you need depends on many things, like the work you're doing,
the length of your stay, your country of origin etc.
