TT lifts travel ban on 8 South African nations

Government has removed the travel restrictions which were previously imposed on eight South African nations.

The Ministry of Health in an advisory on Sunday, revealed that the restrictions, which were imposed due to the spread of the Omicron COVID-19 variant, have been lifted with immediate effect.

The restrictions, which barred non-nationals from entry into T&T, applied to Botswana, Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa and Zimbabwe.

The Ministry reminded the public, however, that all other existing entry requirements, as indicated on the TTravel Pass website must be adhered to, inclusive of a negative nasopharyngeal (nasal swab) RT-PCR test result taken no earlier than 72 hours prior to arrival in Trinidad and Tobago.

The Ministry added that it will continue to assess the developing situation and advise the population of any adjustments to this Health Travel Advisory, as required.
