This website serves to promote South Africa's interest and facilitate government to government and people to people, and business to business relations with Turkey, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan. Similarly, we seek to promote trade and investment relations (economic relations) and to provide consular assistance.
Throughout your tour of this website, you will find a wealth of information on the Republic of South Africa, a country of rich cultural diversity offering unlimited opportunities in trade, investment, human capital and tourism.
In 1994, South Africa managed to end apartheid rule and introduced a new constitutional order, wherein all work towards building a united, non-racial, non-sexist, democratic and prosperous society has been successfully established.
Turkey is a long trusted friend of South Africa and this website provides information both on bilateral relations between the Republic of Turkey and the Republic of South Africa and services provided by this Embassy. There are growing opportunities for Turkish companies and professionals to contribute to the growth of the Republic of South Africa to improve our economic, political and cultural/sports relations.
The Embassy is here to strengthen our mutual interests of friendship and commerce. This website provides information for citizens of Turkey, Azerbaijan and Uzbekistan who want to conduct business with South Africa, or would like to receive information regarding trade and investment opportunities in South Africa; there are several links that will be both useful and of great assistance.
Our Turkish, Azeri and Uzbek friends and nationals of other countries who reside in Turkey, who intend to travel to South Africa will find general tourism information as well as visa application requirements on the site.
