COVID-19 Protocols & Precautions

We look forward to hosting you safely and responsibly at mFulaWozi during the COVID-19 pandemic. Before you book your stay, please note the travel restrictions in place on transit routes and in South Africa.

International travellers should:

  • Check with insurers prior to travel whether COVID-19 test and quarantine costs are covered.
  • On arrival in South Africa, you will need to be in possession of a negative COVID-19 PCR test conducted within 72 hours of departure (some airlines stipulate arrival). Antigen tests and Rapid Diagnostic tests are not sufficient.
  • Ensure compliance with airline and transit country protocols. If travelling for longer than 72 hours, en-route tests might be required and the turnaround time to get results could take a day.
  • Keep a completed mandatory Traveller Health Screening Questionnaire with you during your travel.
  • On arrival in South Africa you will be screened for COVID-19 symptoms. If you display symptoms or have been in contact with infected persons, you will be required to take a COVID-19 test at your own expense. If you are tested positive you will need to undergo a 10-day quarantine at a designated site at your own expense.

Current South African policy:

  • Wearing a face mask in public is mandatory.
  • Social distancing in public spaces.
  • Use of hand sanitiser in public areas, for example malls.
  • Curfew from midnight to 4am.
