On 11 November 2020, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced that South Africa is open to international travel from all countries, effectively eliminating the risk categorisation model for different international travellers.
Entry is still subject to the necessary health protocols and the presentation of a negative COVID-19 test certificate.
It was also announced that by using rapid antigen tests and strict monitoring, South Africa intends to limit the spread of the infection through importation. We are seeking further details on the use and availability of rapid antigen testing at ports of entry.
On the same date, the Ministry of Corporate Governance (COGTA) released the updated Level 1 regulations.
