Hi there and thank you for your question,

I will try to assist you with your legal question but please feel free to ask as many follow up questions in order to clarify your initial question. If you have a new question, you must please open a new thread.

Unfortunately for you, you will need a visa to visit South Africa if you are travelling on a NZ passport.

"SA's Minister of Home Affairs, Malusi Gigaba on Tuesday, 13 December 2016, announced that travellers from New Zealand will have to obtain a visa to enter South Africa.

The new visa regulations came into effect on 21 November 2016, and now requires South Africans to pay NZ$165.00 (about R1 637.07 at R9.92/NZ$), to visit the country."

If your husband has a SA passport, obviously he can enter SA on that.

Your visa will be a spousal visa, so much easier to obtain than an normal holiday visa.

If my answer hasn't provided you with enough clarity regarding your initial question, please send me a REPLY with follow up questions so that I can continue to assist you in this same thread for as long as you need. Let me know if you need more advice - don't just rate my answer as "bad".
