South Africa officially reopening borders for tourism October 1, but with restrictions.


The Republic of South Africa plans to start receiving foreign tourists arriving at one of the three airports – Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban – from 1 October. This was reported by the South African Business Insider on 16 September, citing President Cyril Ramaphosa. At the same time, he noted that citizens of some countries on the “red list” of entry will still be closed, but the list of these countries has not reported.

Upon arrival, passengers are required to submit negative results of the PCR test for coronavirus, which was done not earlier than 72 hours before departure. If the passenger does not have a certificate with him/her, he/she must observe a two-week quarantine. It will also be necessary to install a special government application for geotrecking on smartphones. Those with symptoms at the airport will have to wait for the results of the second test to be quarantined.

Tourists will also have to comply with a number of restrictions to avoid the spread of coronavirus. These include wearing masks in all public places, observing curfews, gathering in groups of no more than 250 people indoors, no more than 500 in the street, and selling alcohol only from Monday to Friday between 9:00 and 17:00.

As of today, this is the case!
