Dear Friends,

Welcome to the South African Embassy website and a New Year full of hope to any challenges. It is without a doubt that the year 2019 was a busy year for the Embassy and we concluded it successfully. Winning the Rugby World Cup towards the end of 2019 is one of the big and beautiful achievements that were brought by the year 2019.

We look forward to the year 2020 and we take it as another opportunity to pursue our national objectives. We are fortunate to have the “stronger together” spirit encouraging us to focus on common goals that are in line with our constitution. Furthermore, for the year 2020 program prime meetings (Cabinet Lekgotla and SONA) will set tone and the marchings orders in the early part of the last quarter of the current financial year.
