Immigration policy

Aaron Motsoaledi continues illegal immigrants fight. He has introduced Visa's for these countries

The Department of Home Affairs is doing everything to address the issue of illegal immigrants. 

Minister Aaron Motsoaledi recently introduced border security guards as a way of dealing with illegal immigrants at Beitbridge border post. 

Even though this move was widely condemned by some quarters, it is operational. 

Motsoaledi has now revealed that travellers from Pakistan and Bangladesh are now required to have Visa's in order to enter South Africa. 

“This means that travellers using ordinary passports issued by Bangladesh and Pakistan authorities are required to apply for a visa when transiting through South Africa to other countries," he said. 

He stated that this was necessitated after a group of Bangladeshi nationals was intercepted while trying to enter the country through a fire hydrant at OR Tambo international airport. 

The minister said the Department of International Relations and Co-operation had notified the governments of Bangladesh and Pakistan of the changes.
