Dear Friends of South Africa,


Welcome to the official website of the South African Embassy in the Russian Federation!


The Republic of South Africa and the Russian Federation have an excellent relationship dating back many years ago when the former USSR supported our people fighting for the liberation of our beautiful country. We are here to further strengthen and nurture this relationship in every way we can, particularly in areas yet unexplored.


The website provides information relating to Embassy’s activities on bilateral relations with the Russian Federation. It also offers guidance on tourism, business opportunities and consular related matters, of immigration and civic duties performed by the Embassy.


While you take the time to browse through our website, I am sure that you will be taken by the natural splendour of our country and will be tempted to come and visit South Africa. We also believe that you can discover the variety that South Africa has to offer as well as the depth of the relations between the Republic of South Africa and the Russian Federation. You will also find an insight into the continuous growth of the people-to-people relations between our countries and the willingness to sustain this growth.


Our people are warm, vibrant and our diverse landscapes are amongst the most breath-taking in the world. It is for these reasons that I wish to invite all of you to visit South Africa.


I want to use this possibility to give you a unique and South African welcome in the name of the South African government and our people of a country where everything is possible.
