South African minister for Transport Fikile April Mbalula has announced that the International travel will soon resume.
While speaking through media coverage, Minister Mbalula said that the National Coronavirus Command Council is considering opening borders.
“Very soon, international travel will be opened. We will announce measures as and when that happens,” said Mbalula.
He was inspecting the OR Tambo International Airport’s COVID-19 adherence after complaints about a lack of compliance.
He also highlighted the need for all the airlines and travellers to adhere to regulations or face the consequences.
“I received a complaint that some of the airlines are not observing regulations on board and have totally lapsed in relation to the regulations.
“There is no enforcement of masks, and there is no sanitising. We want to deal with that because we can’t allow airlines to break the measures that have been set by the government,” he said.
