South Africa is Travel Ready – Webinar recording | The Planner

If you missed the powerful and positive webinar on South Africa’s international inbound tourism recovery, don’t worry… it was recorded!

The session highlighted the following 5 points:

  • Government and Private-Sector have partnered on one Tourism Recovery Strategy.
  • South Africa’s opening to international tourists hinges on robust health and safety protocols which have been developed, approved and are being rolled out.
  • The data-driven Tourism Recovery Strategy sets a date as close to 1 September as possible, based on a phased approach.
  • South Africa and its tourism assets are ideal for travel in a time of COVID-19.
  • We need to create an enabling environment for tourism when we can eventually open, e.g. strong tourism-friendly visa regime.
