The Minister of Tourism, Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane

The Minister of Tourism,  Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane has just announced that leisure travel, including accommodation,  inside the traveller’s own province, is now permitted. Home sharing accommodation (Air BnB-style) is still prohibited.

She emphasised that inter-province travel is still not permitted.

The minister said the curfew will also now commence at 10pm instead of 9pm, in order to assist restaurants to operate at peak time in the evenings. However, the alcohol ban is still in force for restaurants and across the board.

The new regulations will come into effect when a gazette is made.
