Stricter restrictions under Level 3 lockdown

South Africa has moved back to level 3 lockdown regulations since 16 June, following President Ramaphosa’s address to the nation.

The new restrictions include a stricter curfew from 22h00 until 04h00. As a result, establishments such as restaurants and bars will need close at 21h00 to allow their staff to get home in time. On-site alcohol consumption may continue until 21h00, subject to liquor licenses.

Under Alert Level 3 social, political and cultural gatherings, are permitted but limited to 50 persons or less for indoor venues and 100 persons or less for outdoor venues. Read more here.

The new curfew will not affect travel to and from the airport. People who arrive on a flight and are travelling to or from an airport, will be allowed to do so during the restricted hours. They will however need to carry a valid boarding pass or a copy of the flight ticket.
