Collaboration with our industry partner SATSA: New online Traveller Declaration coming soon. Join the webinar on Tuesday

SARS: New Online Traveller Declaration
The South African Revenue Service (SARS) has announced that South Africa will be introducing an online traveller declaration system to simplify passenger movement at South African airports.

The new system requires all travellers, including South African citizens and residents, children and infants, leaving or entering South Africa by air to complete and submit an online traveller declaration, as well as receive a traveller pass before they travel.

The new traveller declaration process is an online system that collects travel information and returns a traveller pass via email.

Upon arrival in South Africa, there will be instructions at the airports that will guide and inform travellers what to do next. The new online South African Traveller Declaration system will be rolled out to all South African international airports commencing with OR Tambo International Airport in November 2022, followed by other international airports in the first quarter of 2023.

In line with the FEDHASA 2.0 directive of collaboration, industry association partner, SATSA, is inviting industry partners to please join SATSA CEO, David Frost and a panel from SARS for a webinar which will unpack the ins and outs of the system and what exactly it means for travellers:
