South Africa cancels tests and masks for foreign tourists

South Africa has canceled tests and masks for foreign tourists

Fully vaccinated travelers are no longer required to present a negative PCR test – test at the entrance to South Africa. Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated foreigners can also enter the country. To do this, they will need a negative PCR test, made no more than 72 hours before arrival. 

From other changes in the protocols for combating COVID-19, we note: 

Sports stadiums and concert venues will be able to fill up to 50 percent of the seats. Visitors must be vaccinated or have a negative PCR test. 

Wearing a mask is no longer required in outdoor public areas. However, indoors, such as shopping malls, galleries, restaurants, and on public transport, masks are required.

The South African tourism industry has responded positively to the removal of most restrictions. This should contribute to the speedy recovery of the industry and return to the level of 2019.

The capital of the country, Cape Town, is called one of the most budgetary tourism destinations not only in Africa, but throughout the world.
