South Africa travel reports and advisories can keep you up-to-date on details regarding the safety and security during your travels. Prior to leaving for South Africa, you should review these reports to make sure that you are aware of any issues that could affect your plans.
We recommend visiting various different official South Africa travel reports, but start with your home country first if it is listed below. All links below will open in a new tab/window.
If high-level travel advisory is listed as "Reconsider your need to travel", "Avoid non-essential travel", "Avoid all travel", or "Do not travel", then be aware of the situation and follow the advice. If you travel in a country or a region of a country that has an "Avoid" or "Do not travel", then your travel insurance may be void and any assistance that you may require may be limited. If a travel status has changed since booking your flight tickets, contact the airline and discuss the issue with them. In most cases, where a high-level travel advisory has been issued after
your booking, the airline will consider a re-booking of your flight or a credit for a later flight without charge.
