The Embassy of South Africa in Israel

Ambassador NgombaneWelcome to the Information Portal of the South African Embassy in Israel.

We are confident that the information you require, or wish to receive on South Africa will be available at the click of a button when browsing through the website.

By exploring the portal, there is no doubt that the website will provide you with a good introduction to South Africa as a multi-ethnic society being alive with possibility.

The future of South Africa is cemented in the concept of Ubuntu - "the spirit of togetherness" and underscores President Nelson Mandela's statement at the dawn of democracy in 1994 that "We shall build a society where all South Africans, both Black and White, will be able to walk tall, without any fear in their hearts, assured of their right to human dignity, a rainbow nation at peace with itself and the world." Our future is also inextricably linked to the development of the African Agenda.

The doors of the Embassy are open to engage you on issues of mutual interest and we are ready to assist you in any way possible in changing the lives of ordinary people for the better!

Once again, welcome to South Africa!  

Ambassador Sisa Ngombane
