Introduction to the South African Embassy in Kuwait
Following SA’s democratic transition diplomatic relations between SA and the State of Kuwait were normalized during 1994. Subsequently, President Nelson Mandela paid an official visit to Kuwait in 1995 which strengthened bilateral political and economic relations between the two countries and paved the way for expanded Kuwaiti investment in SA and the Continent.

The SA Embassy in Kuwait was officially established in 1997 at the current address in Salwa, Kuwait City initially functioning as a micro diplomatic Mission.

The current Head of Mission is Ambassador M Genge. In accordance with SA‘s foreign policy priorities the role, functions and responsibilities of the SA Embassy in the State of Kuwait centre around the following objectives:

  • Strengthen diplomatic and political relations

  • Promote South Africa as a preferred tourism destination

  • Promote the African Agenda and Multilateral Cooperation

  • Provide Consular Services to SA Citizens

  • Provide Civic and Immigration Services to SA Citizens, Kuwaiti and foreign nationals on behalf of Department of Home Affairs
