Travel and transport under lockdown

20 land ports of entry are closed until 15 February with exceptions

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;

  • Diplomats; and

  • daily commuters from neighbouring countries who attend school in South Africa during this period
