Visitors to the isolated South Atlantic island of St Helena are no longer subject to any Covid entrance restrictions, including a seven-day arrival quarantine.
The British Overseas Territory, which has 4,000 residents and is located 2,000 kilometers off the south-western coast of Africa, has implemented a tight policy ever since the epidemic began, and mask use may still be necessary for some regions.
With the addition of weekly flights from Johannesburg starting on 8th October, St Helena, whose airport opened in 2017, will increase its accessibility.
Jonathan, a 184-year-old giant tortoise, lives on the island, which was previously only accessible by a five-day boat trip from Cape Town. Jonathan is the oldest living creature in the world.
Africa-focused tour operator Rainbow Tours, which offers a number of itineraries visiting St. Helena, led by Candice Buchan, said: “This is a very exciting development. St Helena is completely unlike anywhere else and a wonderful choice for clients looking for somewhere a little different to explore.”
