IMPORTANT TRAVEL INFORMATION
Departing South Africa
Travelling domestically within South Africa does not require a PCR. Travellers departing South Africa to a regional destination from OR Tambo can get Covid-19 PCR-tested and collect their certificate at the airport prior to departure. *Results are available within 48 hours and the traveller is advised by SMS that the test result and certificate are ready for collection. *Results may take longer due to demand.
Travellers including South Africans, must hold a negative PCR test certificate taken within 72 hours of their departure time. This certificate is valid for the duration of the traveller’s inbound journey and takes into consideration long stopovers at transit points and is for a single entry only. (Every time a traveller departs for South Africa, a new test is required prior to departure.) Foreign travelers are required to have Covid-19 insurance for travel to South Africa, to cover any quarantine costs if applicable.
