As no one owns the Antarctic continent, visas and passports are not required, however a valid passport will be required for any stops en route and visas and passports may be needed for points of departure.

Most western countries are signatories of the Antarctica Treaty System and those wishing to visit Antarctica independently must obtain a permit.  (South Africa is signatory to the Antarctic Treaty System.)
