Covid-19 Travel Restrictions in South Africa
South Africa has rebooted the country’s commercial flights. However, for tourism or leisure purposes, the South African authorities will not grant entry to anyone traveling from a high-risk region.
Only in Cape Town (CPT), Durban (DUR), or Johannesburg (JNB) may travelers arrive.
Travelers must have a medical certificate taken within 72 hours prior to departure with a negative Coronavirus (COVID-19) test result. Travelers arrived in South Africa are medically checked and must have the COVID Alert South Africa mobile app-enabled. Many that have symptoms will have to continue in isolation until a COVID-19 test is performed.
Visitors without a medical certificate with a negative test result for Coronavirus (COVID-19) are subject to quarantine at their own expense at a government-appointed facility.
