    Please contact your relevant South African consulate for visa requirements as these are subject to change at short notice. In your visa application you should indicate the duration of your stay in South Africa, from the day you arrive until the day you depart. Ask the embassy for a multiple entry visa so you can explore South Africa and its neighbouring countries. It is nearly impossible to receive a visa for a paid internship.
