Message from the Director-General, Ambassador J. M. Matjila
 

Fellow South Africans

Our achieving democracy has yielded us a nation with many wonderful opportunities throughout the world.  This is borne out by the fact that so many of our people now travel abroad for a variety of reasons.

The Department of International Relations and Cooperation, through the Chief Directorate: Consular Services, as well as our Diplomatic and Consular representatives abroad provide assistance and support to our people.  We will continue to carry out this obligation to the best of our ability.  This will be done taking into account available resources, respecting international conventions and in line with our stated foreign policy objectives.

May I also use this opportunity to remind you to respect the laws of the countries in which you work and study and through which you travel.

During the past few years, we have assisted a growing number of our people who have become victims of crime, accidents, illness, death, natural/man-made disasters, civil unrest or whose family and or next-of-kin needed to contact them in emergency.  To this end the Chief Directorate:  Consular Services has developed unique software termed ROSA (Registration of South Africans Abroad) that allows both individual and group travellers to register, update their profiles and de-register their profiles on-line.

Like all consular data the information supplied to ROSA shall be treated in a confidential manner and not divulged to any outside party without the individual’s express consent.

I encourage you to register on this free, voluntary service.

Travel well!
