Information on Visa Fees

The visa fee for all visa categories is 60,00 Euro (Minors between the age of 6 and 12 years pay 35,00 Euro), payable in cash (South African Rand) or by credit card (Master and Visa cards only - NO debit cards accepted) upon application. Additional charges by your bank may apply when using a credit card.

The visa fees are determined according to §46 AufenthV, set in Euro, but are to be paid in South African Rand. The approximate Rand value of the visa will be determined by the exchange rate on the day.

Visa fees for various categories are as follows:

  • Schengen Visa (stays of duration less than 90 days, categorie A, C): 60,00 Euro
  • Minors between the age of 6 and 12: 35,00 Euro
  • National Visa (Germany, stays of duration more than 90 days, Categorie D): 60,00 Euro

Following applicants are exempted from the above-mentioned visa fee:
