President Cyril Ramaphosa has announced a review of legislation around visas. He was addressing the media at the Union Buildings in Pretoria on government's recovery plan aimed at boosting the economy. Ramaphosa says within the next few months, amendments will be made to regulations on the travel of minors and a list of countries requiring visas to enter South Africa which have negatively affected tourism. "These reforms include immediate changes that were approved by cabinet to South Africa's visa architecture or regime. These measures have a huge potential to boost tourism and to make business travel into our country a lot more conducive. Tourism continues to be a great job creator", said Ramaphosa.
