Travelling during a pandemic can be a minefield.

Whilst some people can afford to hire a professional to work it out for them, for many this may not be an option.

That’s why the Epicentre team has put together this list to help you plan that much-needed holiday, business trip, family visit or return trip home.

Please note that we will keep this list as up to date as possible, so join our newsletter to be alerted on the latest updates.

Also note that we have not included every country, although we are working on it. So if you want a country added to the list please email: sales@epicentre.org.za

Please note that we do try to keep this information as up-to-date as possible, but please use the resources provided to keep ahead of shifting regulations. Epicentre cannot be held liable for missed flights or changing regulations
