With President Ramaphosa’s announcement this week that South Africa will be moving to Alert Level 1, comes the update that our borders will be reopening to international travel at the beginning of October.
International travel includes both business and leisure travel, with some restrictions applied:
- Travellers will only be able to use one of the land border posts that have remained open during the course of lockdown.
- If flying internationally, travellers may only fly out of one of the three main airports: King Shaka International, Cape Town International and OR Tambo International.
- Upon arrival in South Africa, all travellers will need to present a negative Covid-19 test result not older than 72 hours from time of departure.
- Where this has not been done, the traveller will need to remain in quarantine at their own expense.
- If a traveller shows symptoms upon arrival during the screening process, they will need to remain in quarantine until a repeat Covid-19 test is done.
- Certain restrictions will apply to and from high-risk countries; this list will be communicated in due course.
We look forward to booking your international travel; get in touch with us and one of our dedicated consultants will connect with you.
