Home Affairs Minister explains the new improvements they have made on the passport and latest visa regulations.

Department of Home Affairs Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi announced on Monday that it is working on a number of changes to the country's visa regime.

Motsoaledi says has succeeded in lowering the turnaround times for critical work skills visas, which are now issued within four weeks.

He tells Refilwe Moloto that the issue reciprocity is not that simple.

We did not consider reciprocity when we took the decision about Qatar and Saudi Arabia. They on their own are considering reciprocating.

We have improved and we think the UK should reconsider.
