Message from the High Commissioner

Welcome to the online portal of the South African High Commission in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

South Africa provides exciting opportunities for investment in a market that boasts a stable democracy, a strong judiciary, incredible infrastructure and world class financial systems and services. We have a young and vibrant population, many strategic resources, innovative minds and the most diversified economy in Africa. South Africa is known as the Gateway into Africa, not only because of our location, but also due to our integrated logistics and transport networks with Southern Africa and further afield in the continent. 

South Africa provides an opportunity to diversify your supply lines as a reliable trade partner offering a wide range of resources and products of high quality at an affordable price. We are well known for our mineral resources, wine, fruit and vegetable products, meat exports, automotive products, manufactured, innovative and high-tech products. Furthermore, South Africa has an advanced Halal sector and is one of the top producers of Halal products globally. Sixty percent of products in our retail stores are Halal certified. Therefore, opportunities abound for cooperation in the Halal sector. Please visit the Trade and Investment page for more information.

I encourage you to visit South Africa to experience our diverse nature and wildlife, beaches, modern cities, mountains, game reserves, wine estates and historical sites. We have everything from high-end luxury to eco and adventure tourism options. Our warm and friendly people will welcome you whether you are on a business trip, a family holiday, shopping excursion or your dream vacation. The country regularly wins top international awards for our various tourism activities and institutions. Please visit the Tourism page for more information.

South Africans travelling to or living in Malaysia are urged to take note of the contact details and emergency phone number of the High Commission for consular and emergency assistance. Please register with the High Commission or register on the link for the "Registration of South Africans Abroad (ROSA)" when travelling to or living in Malaysia.
