South Africa’s borders may be partly open to international travellers but the tourism industry says it’s not business as usual.

Leisure travellers from high-risk countries will not be permitted to travel to the country with exceptions made for business travellers with scarce skills, diplomats, investors, and those participating in sport and other special events.

Travellers from Africa and those from countries deemed medium and low-risk will be allowed to enter SA for both business and leisure.
