South African citizens can now travel to USA for 180 days without visa. An extension of the said date will require visa. South Africa’s Minister of International Relations and Cooperation, Maite Nkoana Mashabane, has confirmed that her office has received a Memo from the United States Embassy confirming that South Africans no longer need visas when traveling to the United States for holiday or business up to a stay of 180 days.
The said breaking news went viral that the United States President, Donald Trump has signed an executive order to allow South Africa nationals travel to the United States without visas. The news that was too good to be true has been debunked by various websites without verification but the Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation has put to rest the arguments surrounding the reports
