South Africa has developed a risk categorisation model for different countries, classifying countries according to a scale of high, medium and low risk. High-risk countries are those with higher numbers of COVID-19 infections and reported deaths compared to SSouth Africa.  Medium risk countries have a relatively equal number of infections and death toll to South Africa, whilst low-risk countries have a lesser number of COVID-19 infections and the death toll in comparison to South Africa. All travellers coming into the country will be screened for any COVID-19 symptoms and be required to provide proof of accommodation address, should they need to self-quarantine. They will also need to supply a negative PCR (polymerase chain reaction) COVID test not older than 72 hours from the date of departure from their country.


“We are encouraged to see that travel is open for the rest of the continent. This follows global trends in changing traveller behaviour which is influenced by trust and confidence where travel starts domestically then regionally and ultimately internationally,” says SA Tourism Chief Executive Officer, Mr Sisa Ntshona.
