The past week has witnessed positive announcements in respect of travel bans.
The lifting of travel restrictions, while welcomed, does call for consistency. Six (6) weeks ago South African’s and our fellow Southern African citizens were not allowed near some countries. Now we are allowed back, and all seems to be back to normal with clear guidelines on how we may enter and travel to certain European, Asian and Middle Eastern Countries.
So, in welcoming the announcements, SAACI calls for more consistency that will aid our Business Events Industry planning and operations.
SAACI, with our industry partners, have made a number of proposals, and are working with the relevant government departments to ensure that as a destination we have clear and consistent guidelines for visitors and business events delegates to our shores.
As many countries have indicated, PCR testing, with proof of vaccination will remain in place. Some countries have waivered this for now.
We hope that South Africa will follow an accepted process that allows for ease of movement within the travel guidelines matched within our source markets.
