Relaxed visa regulations on the cards for BRICS travellers
The move is aimed at encouraging economic growth.
CAPE TOWN - South Africans conducting business travel to BRICS countries will soon benefit from relaxed visa regulations aimed at encouraging economic growth.
Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba on Thursday told the Cape Town Press Club that the major agreement would also mean more efficient Port of Entry VISA regulations for business people from Brazil, Russia, India and China.
Gigaba said South Africa was ready to welcome visitors who would contribute to economic growth.
He said he'd approved 10-year port of entry visas for business people from South Africa's BRICS partners.
The minister said the agreement aimed to strengthen ties with BRICS nations and facilitate economic development in South Africa.
Gigaba said the move also created an opportunity to attract skilled labour from Brazil, Russia, India and China.
