Visa Guide

Passports & Visas Information

A full passport valid for at least three months is required for entry into Eswatini (formerly Swaziland). For tourist visits, visas are NOT required by citizens of most Commonwealth countries, the USA, Japan, most European Union countries and certain other countries. Tourist or business travellers are allowed to visit Eswatini for up to 30 days. Following this you can apply for a further 30-day extension at the Ministry of Home Affairs. If staying for longer than 60 days, you will need to apply for a Temporary Residence Permit (TRP). Please use the Visa Checker below, and refer to your nearest Eswatini diplomatic mission if required, from which visas for any nationality can be obtained. For visitors who need visas and who are travelling through South Africa and planning to obtain them from Eswatini High Commission there,  a useful document about the application process is available by clicking here.

NOTE: Although we make every effort to keep this list fully up to date, changes may occur and inaccuracies may be shown. We recommend using this table only as a guidance.

A full list of which nationalities do and don’t require visas to enter Eswatini is also available as a download and can be checked against the Ministry of Home Affairs website.

For nationalities that DO require visas to visit Eswatini, these visas can NOT yet be obtained on arrival at any Eswatini border post, but must be organised in advance from one of Eswatini’s Missions Abroad. However, there are plans to offer visas on arrival in the near future. The following local Swazi companies can also assist in obtaining visas:
