The world is starting to open up more and more to South Africans wanting to travel. Different requirements may still apply depending on the country of travel. These may include but are not limited to quarantine upon arrival, additional testing, or vaccination requirements. The introduction of a digital vaccination card by the South African government, will be a welcome advantage for travel and we will update you on these developments as received. The list of countries open to South Africans is updated on a weekly basis, for up-to-date information please check our travel map here or contact your Travel Expert.
