As of today, the South African government has updated its Covid-19 travel restrictions. These changes take effect immediately and deal with borders and travel regulations.
Among the main points in the updated regulations are:
- 20 land borders that were previously partially open are now fully operational, while the 33 that remained closed will stay closed.
- Daily commuters from neighbouring countries (including for school and teaching) can move across borders, but need to adhere to Covid-19 protocols.
- International travel is restricted to OR Tambo Airport, Cape Town International Airport, and King Shaka International Airport.
- All international travellers arriving in the country need to provide a negative Covid-19 test. If not, the traveller will be required to do an antigen test upon arrival, and will need to self-isolate for 10 days at their own expense.
Now that international travel is permitted again, are you looking into South African immigration and need legal help with your application? Schedule a consultation today.
