South Africa Puts Germany onto the List of High Risk Countries

The Government has revised the list of high risk countries based on a risk categorization model and Germany is included on the list.

Please note that visa exemption is withdrawn for people intending to travel to South Africa for holiday purposes, until further notice.

People from high risk countries who may visit SA fall in the following categories: business travellers, holders of critical skills visas, investors and people on international mission in sports, arts, culture and science.

In addition, we recognise that there are a number of regular visitors from mainly European countries that have been accustomed to long periods of visitation to our country during our summer season when it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere. Most of them own properties in the country. We appreciate the significant economic contribution that they make through their activities in the country. To this end, we will also allow visitors, in whichever category, who are coming to stay for a three months period or more subject to Covid-19 protocols.

People who need to apply must direct email requests to: Covid19BusinessTravel(at)dha.gov.za, supported by -

  • a copy of passport and/or temporary residence visa;
  • proof of business activities to be undertaken in the Republic;
  • proof of travel itinerary; and
  • proof of address or accommodation in the Republic.

The Department of Home Affairs has increased the capacity of people managing the email account to ensure speedier responses and we will try our best to ensure that responses are communicated within 24 hours.

Here is the latest list of high risk countries
