South Africa has resumed a number of immigration services after the country moved its national lockdown to level 1 on Sept. 20. The government also announced a number of entry requirements for inbound travelers.
Under current plans, international travel will be allowed to resume Oct. 1.
International travel by air will only be allowed at King Shaka International Airport, O.R. Tambo International Airport and Cape Town International Airport.
The number of points of entry at borders and ports that reopened Oct. 1 will be limited initially. South African transport minister Fikile Mbalula said that the country will adopt a risk-based system that will consider individual countries’ COVID-19 infection rates when determining restrictions on travel into and out of South Africa. More information is expected soon.
