    Yes you need a visa. Cost is around $37.
    Living permit makes no difference. Passport nationality is what it important.

    Dear Ying

    If you have a living permit for Switzerland then you need a visa but can apply at the South African High Commition in Switzerland. Should you want only a visitors visa. If you need assistance with your visa and travel arrangements to South Africa you can contact me at [email protected] we can help you.
