Do I need a passport or visa to enter?
A passport is required. Visas are not required for tourists and business travelers arriving in Swaziland for short visits (less than 60 days) on standard U.S. passports. Most travelers visiting Swaziland enter through South Africa.
Please note: Travelers to South Africa are strongly encouraged to have several unstamped visa pages left in their passports. South Africa requires two unstamped visa pages, excluding amendment pages, to enter the country. Visitors who do not have enough free visa pages in their passport risk being denied entry and returned to the United States at their own expense.
Travelers to Swaziland who are transiting South Africa should note that if they are transiting a country with yellow fever (such as when on the United States-Johannesburg flight that transits Dakar, potentially even when passengers remain on the plane), they must have proof of yellow fever vaccination.
