The visa will allow you to travel to a South African port of entry where an immigration official will then determine if you are allowed to enter South Africa and for how long you can stay for that particular visit.
You must ensure that you apply for the correct visa. Entry in the country may be refused if the purpose of the visit was not correctly stated.
