Travelling with prescription medication
I am on medication for hypertension and I am travelling to the USA for a 2month business trip. I am already petitioning my Medical Aid for permission to obtain the necessary medication, but do I need to obtain permission from the South African Department of Health or obtain permission from a US department?
