South Africa is opening its borders as restrictions ease from October and we have compiled a few tips and a COVID-19 packing checklist.
Tips for travelling in the time of COVID-19 pandemic :
- Pack the NEW essentials
The list of essential goods to have when travelling has completely changed due to the covid-19 virus. Ensure you have cloth masks, this has become mandatory in nearly every country across the globe of locals and especially tourists, carry hand sanitizer and your own thermometer at all times.
- Be mindful of what you touch
It’s important to be mindful when using devices or touching surfaces that others have used too such as ATMS, check-in machines, escalators etc. Use a generous amount of sanitizer whenever you touch any of these surfaces and be careful not to touch your face.
- Minimise human contact
Wherever possible, try to rely on technology and automation. Get your boarding pass from the machine and sanitise your hands afterwards. In terms of food and retail outlets within the airport, try not to touch common surfaces, maintain the recommended distance from the staff, and try to pay using contactless options.
