REGISTRATION OF SOUTH AFRICANS ABROAD (ROSA)
 
What is ROSA?
 
ROSA is the acronym for the ‘Registration of South Africans Abroad’, a software programme developed by the Department of International Relations and Cooperation allowing travellers to register on-line.

The information travellers register on ROSA allows the Department of International Relations and Cooperation to assist South African citizens in event of an emergency.  The registration is a free, voluntary service provided by Government (through the Department of International Relations and Cooperation).  ROSA is only available to South African citizens who are travelling, living or working abroad.

ROSA is an initiative that is endorsed and supported by the Association of South African Travel Agents (ASATA). 
 
Why should I register?
 
Vast numbers of our people who travel abroad every day do not encounter any difficulties.  However, through our missions abroad, we have assisted a growing number of South Africans who have become victims of crime, accident/s, illness, death, natural/man-made disasters, civil unrest, or whose family and/or next-of-kin needed to contact them in an emergency.

Registration through this website is NOT considered proof of South African citizenship.  If you apply for any service from an Embassy, High Commission or Consulate General (mission) while abroad, you will be asked by staff to provide proof of South African citizenship, such as a passport or bar coded ID book.

By registering your trip on-line with ROSA you assist the Department of International Relations and Cooperation to locate you during an emergency, verifying your status and liaising with your next-of-kin.  Information on ROSA is not continuously monitored and will only be accessed during a declared consular emergency.

Registration is voluntary and free of charge.  We encourage you to consider registration as an integral part of your travel planning and security.
 
 How do I register?
 
The ROSA software is an on-line registration process available on the Department of International Relations and Cooperation website.  The address is http://www.dfa.gov.za/consular/index.html
