International travelers are allowed to visit South Africa again, from 1 October 2020.
This is the news we’ve been waiting for since March… In Lockdown Level 1 international travellers will once again be permitted to visit South Africa!
Travellers from most countries will be allowed entry, subject to these conditions:
- Travellers will need to present a negative Covid19 test result upon arrival, not older than 72 hours from departure, which will allow entry WITHOUT quarantine
- Travellers who show symptoms upon arrival, and travellers without a valid test result, will need to self-quarantine for 2 weeks at their own cost
- Only 3 international airports will be open for international flights: King Shaka, OR Tambo and Cape Town International Airports
- Covid19 safety protocols remain in place, like social distancing, hygiene and mask-wearing in public
- Travellers from high risk countries (to be confirmed, but speculation includes US, UK and EU countries) will remain banned for now
- Travellers will need to install the government’s Covid Alert app on their phones
While there are still some restrictions in place, this is WONDERFUL news for the South African tourism industry!
