In an interview with Mmegi, the ministry’s permanent secretary Dr Temba Mmusi said SA, which is a sovereign state, took the decision and the basis for the decision was not known.

He stated that in the past, Batswana travelling to South Africa seeking medical attention were not being expected to obtain Medical Visas.

“The challenges that the two countries encountered due of lack of Visa application by Batswana who seek medical attention in SA without Visas are unauthosired stay in RSA medical facilities which is against international laws and may sour diplomatic relation between Botswana and

RSA together the two countries and Batswana being declared unwelcome in RSA which means that they will not be able to travel to RSA to visit, receive service or do business,” he said.

Mmusi therefore advised Botswana citizens going to RSA for medical reasons to apply for medical permits. He highlighted that the application could be obtained through the South African High Commission in Gaborone. 

“Proper arrangements should be made with the SA High Commission offices before departure. Batswana are urged to take heed of this advice to avoid any inconvenience,” he added.
