In a statement issued by Home Affairs yesterday, the border is now free of traffic.

“The Musing Local Municipality provided additional holding areas which enabled vehicles going to the border to be released to travel in manageable numbers. The municipality also provided ablution facilities and water along the route from the town of Musina to the port of entry.”

Travellers are urged to keep observing traffic and immigration laws, and health protocols in place to fight the spread of Covid-19.
