According to tourism minister Lindiwe Sisulu, South Africa has lifted its remaining Covid-19 restrictions, signaling “the return to life as we knew it before the pandemic.”
For both vaccinated and unvaccinated visitors, there are no longer any testing requirements for entry, face masks are no longer necessary indoors or in public places, and there are no restrictions on gatherings.
“This will go a long way in boosting the tourism sector’s growth as travellers will be able to participate in more activities, including attending big events and gatherings that not only contribute to our country’s appeal but also to our economy,” Sisulu added.
Since the red list limitations were lifted, more people from the UK and Ireland have been traveling to South Africa, according to Kgomotso Ramothea, acting hub head for UK and Ireland for South African Tourism.
“The end of Covid-19 measures, coupled with increased capacity from Virgin Atlantic’s announcement of direct flights from London to Cape Town from 5 November, will give tourism the boost it needs to reach, or even exceed, the record numbers experienced in 2019,” Ramothea added.
