RKI: South Africa no longer a high-risk area | tourism up-to-date

Good news for South Africa tourism: As of next Sunday, the holiday destination on the Cape will no longer be considered a high-risk area. In addition, the Robert Koch Institute (RKI) removes numerous other African countries from the list: Namibia, Tanzania, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Uganda, Rwanda, Malawi, Lesotho, Eswatini, Burundi and Angola. With the abolition of the risk status, entry rules for returnees are no longer as strict for these countries.

On the other hand, the twelve countries that the RKI will upgrade to high-risk countries from January 30 include Cuba, Singapore and Oman. The other countries Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Guatemala, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Palau, the Ukraine and the French overseas commission New Caledonia are currently not of great importance for tourism.

You can find an overview of the new high-risk areas on the RKI-Website.
