South Africa denies Nigeria visa-free status, grants Ghana - Vanguard by Elchicolo: 6:14pm On Jul 11
Ghana is the latest country to be granted a visa-free status by the South African government.

South Africa’s Department of Home Affairs has added Ghana to a list of seven countries whose nationals will be permitted to enter South Africa visa-free.

Nigeria was not included despite the large volume of trade between the two countries. South Africa announced in September 2018, that it was finalising a number of visa waiver agreements with other countries including Ghana to allow travellers to enter the country without a visa.

According to the Minister of Home Affairs, Aaron Motsoaledi, citizens of the seven countries are able to enter South Africa without a visa.

“Tourism will soar if we relax visa requirements for entry into South Africa. We know that Tourism is very important for job creation,” he said today at a briefing in South Africa.

“Out of the 193 countries who are member states of the United Nations, the Department has granted visa-free status to 75 countries.

Of these 16 are in our continent and are SADC members and 59 are from all over the world.”

As long as our leaders and their families have easy access to other countries either by virtue of dual citizenship or political power,they will never consider free-visa policies with other countries. They never want others to enjoy what they and their families enjoy. Funny enough,most Nigerians see it as normal. It is Never Normal. If they consider Nigeria good enough for business due to her population strength,then they should also consider her people good enough to have easy movement.

This has nothing to do with yesterday's match as commented above rather it has a lot to do with the attitude by many Nigerians.

Giving nigeria visa free status will flood their country with millions of unproductive Nigerians. Nobody wants that. Anyone who deserves a Visa will most likely get it if he applied. After all, Nigeria didn't give SA free visa entry, so?

A reasonable country will hit them back economically, but unfortunately Nigeria is not a reasonable country. South African companies makes the highest profit from Nigeria than anywhere in Africa, yet they hate us so much.
Honestly our leaders are fools.

Going to South Africa visa free is one thing, escaping a xenophobic attack is another thing .

What have they done to stop xenophobic attacks on fellow Africans?
