Best option for short term stay in South Africa?

Heya,

 

 

So I am currently not living in South Africa, but I do get to visit quite a lot. And well, I am sick of being WiFi dependant to stay connected.

 

Any recommendations of what I could look into?

- Costs? Existing deals?

- Do I need a proof of address?

 

Any support, tips and tricks are much appreciated! Ta!

I have the same question, but I also want to know if I need to present any official documents such as my passort, ID, etc... upon purchase of a prepaid sim.

Hi,

 

Because of RICA rules and regulations, to purchase a Sim Card in South Africa you require a ID book and proof of residence.

I am unsure what would be required for tourists.

Hand over Passport + hotel information thats what i know
