Last updated: 13 January 2021
On Monday night, 11 January, President Cyril Ramaphosa added a few more restrictions to the current alert level 3 due to the increase in Coronavirus infections. A significant one is the closure of 20 land border posts to general entry and departure, with a few exceptions, until 15 February.
TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS IN ALERT LEVEL 3
The six busiest border posts – Beitbridge, Lebombo, Maseru Bridge, Oshoek, Ficksburg and Kopfontein – also have been closed. However, there will be exceptions for those:
transporting fuel, cargo and goods;
travelling for emergency medical attention for a life-threatening condition;
returning South African nationals, permanent residents or persons with other valid visas;
foreign nationals departing South Africa;
daily commuters from neighbouring countries who attend school in South Africa during this period
