Hi! Is there any flight / air lines that fly from reunion to south africa example: cape town / johannesburg? I'm a budget traveler is there any cheap flight carrier?
Do I need to apply a visa to get in reunion?
1) Air Austral flies from Johannesburg, see http://www.reunion.aeroport.fr/. Cheapest deals are likely to be by charter flight if there are tour operators where you are that operate package tours to La Réunion and are willing to sell flight-only deals. However, I would imagine this is only possible from France.
2) Normally not, for a stay of up to 3 months, see iledelareunion.net/uk/travel.... However, you must check this with the French Embassy in your country of residence as only the Embassy concerned can give you accurate and up-to-date information.
Also check out South African Airways! www.flysaa.com
There is no low cost carrier...
For the visa it's best to contact the French Embassy in your country!
