BRICS countries to enjoy Ten year visas
Department of Home Affairs has recently promulgated a ten-year visa to the individuals of BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) nations. Few of the concerned representatives of the country noted in a statement that this is a good announcement given by the officials of theUS. As per the new statement of the respective officials, all the newly introduced measures are applicable to business visitors of BRICS nations holding a valid passport and diploma. Moreover, all the overseas applicants who are aspiring to visit the country for short-term business reasons need to meet the minimum eligibility criteria of SA. 

All the qualified and eligible business visitors will be granted a Port of Entry Visas that are valid for the duration of ten years. However, this visa permits a prospective applicant to visit the country for a maximum period of 30 days each time.  Port of Entry Visas is granted by the consulates of South Africa, but are given a visa entry only after receiving an appropriate decision at the port of entry from immigration authorities.

Sources of the nation recommended the respective companies not to consider this as an actual visa waiver or exemption, as all the prospective applicants from India, Russia and China need to apply for a primary visa before their travel. However, the holder of this new visa is permitted to make multiple visits to SA within the valid duration. 
It’s a known fact that the passport holder of Brazil is already a visa waiver part of the Department of Home Affairs, thus do not need to hold a visa prior to their business tours of up to 90 days. But, respective officials recommend Brazil visitors to return to their home country to apply for a ten-year visa option.

South Africa’s Department of Home Affairs expects that this new significant step would bring a good surge in the bilateral relationship in investment and trade sectors between SA and BRICS nations.
