Foreign NSO’s/Scouting members visiting SA
All international Scouting visitors – be it as a tourist or an exchange programme – who wish to be in contact with members of SCOUTS South Africa are required to contact the International Committee prior to visiting South African Scout Groups.
Visit a Group in SA
Anybody wanting to visit a Group – Meerkats, Cubs, Scouts, Rovers – needs to have a Letter of Introduction from their National Scout Organisation (NSO). This is a standard procedure for all NSOs. It can be in the form of a letter on the NSO letterhead or on the WOSM issued “Letter of Introduction”. Either-way it needs to be signed by the International Commissioner/Chief Commissioner. This indicates that the person is in good standing with their NSO. Note: In South Africa this is also prescribed in our Child Protection Policy. This letter will need to be sent to the International Committee – accompanied by a completed form below – who will advise the respective Regional and/or District teams. Find form here: Individual International visitor or International visitors
