There may be several reasons why more South African passport holders are experiencing difficulties obtaining visas for first-world countries. One factor could be the increased security measures implemented by many countries in response to global security concerns, including terrorism and illegal immigration. Additionally, some countries have stricter visa requirements for citizens of certain countries based on factors such as the political and economic stability of those nations, as well as the risk of illegal immigration or overstay.
It is also possible that negative perceptions of South Africa’s economy and political climate may be contributing to the trend of visa rejections. However, it is important to note that visa decisions are ultimately made on a case-by-case basis and are subject to the discretion of the issuing country’s immigration authorities.
It is worth noting that the COVID-19 pandemic has also led to many countries implementing stricter visa requirements and travel restrictions, which may be affecting visa application outcomes for South African passport holders.
