To vote in elections in South Africa you must be a registered voter. If you are already registered to vote in South Africa (check your registration status online), you don’t have to re-register.If you aren’t registered, you will need to visit your nearest South African embassy, high commission, or consulate; and bring both a green, bar-coded South African ID book, smartcard ID or valid Temporary Identity Certificate (TIC) AND your valid South African passport.

Once the Special Registration Officer has verified that you’re eligible to apply, you will complete a registration form and will then be given a Proof of
Registration Application form. This is not proof of registration, but only that you applied.

You can confirm your registration status online at 7 working days after applying.
