Posted on 10 July 2020 By Anita Froneman

After the Tourism Business Council of South Africa (TBCSA) said the industry will operate according to the Government Gazette which permits leisure travel within a province, the government has now officially confirmed that accommodation establishments may welcome visitors either for business travel or leisure travel within a province.

This comes after Tourism Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane announced no leisure travel will be permitted during Level 3.

Private home share options like Airbnb are still not allowed.

Inter-provincial travel is still banned on the current level of lockdown. TBCSA CEO, Tshifhiwa Tshivhengwaif said that if government does not open inter-provincial leisure soon, mass retrenchments could start within the sector. ‘Inter-provincial travel will bring hope to the industry and mitigate mass retrenchments,’ Tshivhengwaif added.
