    There is no requirement when entering the UK other than that your passport needs to be valid.

    However, your passport needs to be valid for 30 days after you exit South Africa.

    Entry Requirements - Passport validity
    You must hold a valid passport to enter South Africa. Your passport must be valid for a minimum period of 30 days from the date of exit from South Africa. South African authorities state officially that only one blank passport page is required for entry. However, visitors have been refused entry and sent back to the UK as some officials are insisting on two blank pages. We advise that you have two blank pages in your passport on arrival.
