Visa fees and Service fees

* The visa fees are charged for the administrative process and not the visa itself. Visa fees will not be refunded whatever the outcome of the visa application.

The fees are accorded to the exchange rate of the South African Rand against the Euro, so may vary.

In addition to the visa administrative fee, CAPAGO will charge its own service fee equivalent to 25 € payable in South African Rand.

Visas are issued free of charge for children under age 6 ; Visa fees is 35 € for children age 6 to 12.
