Cape Town Tourism applauds visa pause

Cape Town Tourism has welcomed Department of Home Affairs Minister, Malusi Gigaba’s announcement yesterday that the introduction of strict new laws for travelling to and from South Africa with children has been postponed until 1 June 2015.

Cape Town Tourism CEO, Enver Duminy, commented: “Minister Gigaba has heard the plight of the tourism industry and is prepared to work with us on minimising the impact that some of the more far-reaching changes are poised to have. We welcome news of a task-team and believe that a clear, open and honest approach – with input from all areas – is the only way forward.”

Duminy said that Cape Town Tourism is also working with partners such as FEDHASA, WESGRO, SATSA and The City of Cape Town to create a clear and wide-reaching communication campaign to bring the facts to all potential travellers who may have to apply for new documents or in new ways in order to travel to South Africa.
