Tourism Update understands that the Department of Health’s COVID SA travel system is is down, and the required online travel health questionnaire (THQ) cannot be submitted by travellers ahead of their departure to and from SA.
Port Health Services has confirmed that the hard copy handed to passengers on the aircraft is sufficient and the Board of Airline Representatives of South Africa has also communicated this to all its members to ensure they had hard copies of the THQ on board at all times.
Airports Company of South Africa (Acsa) also provides the form for download on its website. To assist readers, we have provided the forms for download as well.
For those entering SA, this form (click here) is applicable.
