The governments of South Africa and the Republic of South Africa have imposed a travel ban on citizens from seven predominantly African countries. This includes Syria, Iraq, Iran, Libya, Sierra Leone, Nigeria, and Tanzania. This was imposed by the government of the Republic of South Africa due to the influx of illegal immigrants and travelers from these countries. The countries that are affected are; Gambia, Ivory Coast, Morocco, Cote D’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Iraq, and Transvaal. These nations are not considered safe for tourists anymore because of the recent conflicts and terrorism in their respective regions.
Many tourists are upset and appalled by the travel ban and its impacts on travel to the country. The most affected category is that of those who travel with family or friends. The travel ban affects both South Africans and foreigners who have family or friends in these seven countries. The main impact of the travel ban is on tourist’s right to enter the country; however, there are other effects on foreign investors and expatriates, who are mostly from the African continent and have family and friends in these countries.
The United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, and Germany were the major contributors to the funding of the construction of the Mombasa airport. This was done in co-operation with the United States and the Republic of South Africa. The United States has also expressed concern over the travel ban. If implemented, this could seriously damage the South African tourism industry. Many tourists who have booked flights to South Africa two months ago will have to cancel their reservation or look for another destination. Several airlines have already canceled or is reducing the number of flights to and from South Africa due to the new travel restrictions imposed by the government.
There is also a danger of becoming stranded in case a plane accident happens in South Africa. There is a possibility that some passengers on an overcrowded flight may refuse to go back to their home country due to the fear of being detained by authorities of the Republic of South Africa. It is highly possible that illegal immigrants from the United Kingdom could be incarcerated while they are repatriated. The United Kingdom is in the process of reinforcing its policing capabilities at the airport and at other seaports. There are also several reports that the police and the immigration authorities have been less tolerant to foreign nationals who have obtained the h-2a visa.
In addition, it is believed that the United Kingdom has implemented travel bans for Pakistanis, Indians, and Bangladeshis who wish to travel to the Kingdom of South Africa. The travel bans affect South African citizens who wish to travel to the United Kingdom and other Commonwealth countries. However, the United Kingdom has yet to announce any new travel bans. Some airlines have already reduced their services to South Africa after the implementation of the travel bans.
There are still a number of passengers who are traveling between the UK and South Africa despite the current travel ban. One reason why passengers continue to travel is that they may have business connections with South African companies that require them to travel to the country. It is possible to contact the airlines regarding flight details if you are traveling from the United Kingdom to South Africa and need to know about any flights that have been canceled or made early. You can also contact the airlines if you are traveling from other countries. They may provide you with details regarding flights that have been canceled or changed for the worse.
Another reason why there are still people planning to travel to South Africa despite the travel ban is the fact that most hotels in the UK are chain hotels and they are still operating. The travel industry is not expected to experience a major hit until at least the end of the year. Therefore, many tourists are likely to stay in the UK despite the travel restrictions. This is especially true of countries like the Dominican Republic, which is one of the hardest hit by the travel ban.
Finally, a number of British nationals who are not currently affected by the travel ban will be traveling between the UK and South Africa either for work or for pleasure. For these people, the travel ban has not affected their ability to travel and still meet their family obligations. If you are not affected by the new travel restrictions between the UK and the Republic of South Africa, you may still be able to enjoy a holiday in the country. Make sure you contact the government for travel tips and information on how to get around the country.
