On Thursday, the new travel rules state that families flying to South Africa will be quarantined if any family member tests positive for Covid-19.
Furthermore, families in quarantine will have to pay for their stay.
Friends and colleagues traveling together or unrelated passengers in adjoining seats won’t receive the same treatment.
Anyone on an inbound international flight that shows symptoms of the virus must go through “primary and secondary screening,”
The use of any “immunity passport” or “risk-free certificate” at the borders of South Africa will be dismissed entirely.
Every individual that wishes to enter the country must have a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) test of no more than 72 hours old from a verified laboratory.
All passengers, with the exception of children under two, should use masks during most of the flight to South Africa, remarking that pre-packaged meals and on-board catering are allowed.
