All South Africans eligible to vote may check whether they are registered on the voters’ roll via the website of the Electoral Commission at

If registered inside South Africa then it is not necessary to register again abroad. However, should you not be a registered voter as yet, there is a form that you will have to complete. This has to be done in person at the South African Consulate in Sao Paulo or at the Embassy in Brasilia; whichever is the closest to you. The dates to register at the Embassy or Consulate have however not yet been issued.

Further details such as the registration dates and process applicable to the South African Citizens eligible to vote abroad will be posted on our website as and when they become available.
