Between the paperwork and the application fee, getting a visa can be nearly as painful as getting a jab at the travel clinic. So why not avoid the whole laborious process if you can?
Although the power of the South African passport has slipped in recent years, there are still an array of exciting destinations we can visit visa-free. A whopping 70 in fact, according to the 2020 Henley Passport Index.
This index ranks the world's passports from strongest to weakest based on data from the International Air Transport Association and research by Henley.
The Henley Passport Index's interactive website is updated in real time, as and when visa policy changes come into effect, making it a handy resource to use when planning your next overseas holiday. It not only shows which destinations South African passport holders do and don't need visas to visit, but also those where visas can be obtained on arrival.
Here are the 70 destinations it currently states we can travel to visa-free:
Antigua and Barbuda
British Virgin Islands
Kitts and Nevis
Vincent and the Grenadines
