south africa tourism logo...After facing certain challenges which cropped up due to changed immigration policies of the South African government, the tourism sector in the country is now happy with the amendments made in the immigration regulations to ensure that tourists travel with ease.
The industry had raised concerns over the immigration regulations introduced by the Department of Home Affairs last year.

 
Addressing the media in Pretoria on Friday, Home Affairs Director-General Mkuseli Apleni said his department remains committed to easing the implementation of the amended immigration legislation and regulations.

 
Some of the earlier regulations required parents or guardians travelling with minors to produce an unabridged birth certificate at ports of entry. At the time, tourism stakeholders said this would impact negatively on tourism.

 
David Frost, the Chief Executive Officer of the Southern Africa Tourism Services Association (SATSA), commended Home Affairs over progress made to implement the concessions that Cabinet made last year to ease the implementation of the amended immigration legislation and regulations.

 
The new developments will end the differences that existed between the sector and the Department of Home Affairs, Frost said.
