Work Permits
Although visas may be required, fortunately work permits are not for foreign crew working on your commercial in South Africa. However since visa requirements tend to change, it's best to check with your local South African representative or consulate. Should you require any assistance in this such as a letter of invitation, just shout.

South Africa is well connected with the rest of the world and all the major airlines are represented here. Johannesburg International Airport is a major hub (though some airlines fly direct to Cape Town and Durban). Should you land at JHB, many domestic flight are available to fly on to Durban (one hour away) and Cape Town which is a two hour flight.
