It’s been a while, but…
…South Africa opened its international borders for the first time in over six months as part of the country’s move to a level 1 lockdown!
The government has developed a list of high and low-risk countries which will be allowed to travel to and from the country based on World Health Organisation guidelines over a seven-day period.
High risk travellers are those who come from countries with higher numbers of Covid-19 infections and reported deaths compared to South Africa.
Medium risk travellers are from countries with relatively equal number of infections and death toll to SA.
Low risk travellers obviously originate from countries with lesser number of infections of Covid-19 and death toll than SA.
This list will be updated on a regular basis, reviewed every two weeks.
Travellers that intend to visit the country will need to produce a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test not older than 72 hours from the time of departure from the country of origin. Upon arrival, travellers will be screened for any Covid-19 symptom s and will also be screened for contract with people who have been in contact with others who could have had Covid-19. Travellers will also need to provide proof of accommodation addresses in case they need to self-isolate. International travel around the world has been severely impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Those who are found to have Covid-19 after entering the country will be required to isolate for 10 days at their own cost. Travel insurance will be mandatory for all travellers.
