With all international flights prohibited during the lockdown period, international tourists in South Africa will no longer be tested upon their departure at the airport.

The Department of Health will now do testing at all accommodation establishments where these international travellers are staying during the lockdown period.

South African Tourism has over the last week, called on all establishments to furnish details of international travellers staying with them.

South African Tourism is also encouraging all international tourists in the country, during lockdown, to inform their respective Embassies of their whereabouts.
