Hlengwa, Mr M to ask the Minister of Home Affairs

What are the full relevant details of the new model on migration that he is finalising work on to facilitate ease of movement of people, goods, and services between the Republic and Lesotho, following on the inaugural Bi-National Commission between the two countries that was held on 28 September 2023?


The discussion on the migration models between South Africa and the Kingdom of Lesotho will be joint research on how migration should be managed between the two countries recognising Lesotho’s geo-political position as a landlocked country. All movement between Lesotho and third countries involves transit through South Africa as well as regular movement between the peoples of the country on a daily basis. The first phase of this research will be to do research on similar models in other countries and then do comparisons with the current challenges between South Africa and Lesotho. The two countries will be meeting in November 2023 to discuss the terms of reference and agree on timelines for the research.
