Fully vaccinated South Africans can now visit any of the following countries:
- Bosnia and Herzegovina
You can visit Iceland, the Land of Fire and Ice, with its majestic ice glaciers and some of the world’s most active volcanoes. Embark on an adventure to Romania, with its green hills that are enveloped in vineyards and forests, sandy beaches, and snow-covered mountains.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Switzerland before, you can experience scenic train rides, admire the breathtaking landscapes, try your hand (or leg) at skiing or indulge in their world-famous Swiss fondues and chocolates. Plan your dates well and you may just be in time for the famous Switzerland Christmas Markets, considered to be some of the most beautiful and largest in Europe.
For an authentic Eastern European experience, Bosnia Herzegovina and Ukraine are must-sees. It is impossible not to fall in love with the dramatic rocky mountains, hauntingly beautiful landscapes, and turquoise rivers with their glorious waterfalls of the Balkans.
Ukraine provides plenty of activities that suit everyone’s budget and taste. From exploring the remote Carpathian mountains, to its bustling city life, or exploring the medieval cultural heritage and Soviet architecture, you are bound to be captivated.
North Macedonia And Albania
Macedonia and Albania currently allow entry to unvaccinated travellers. North Macedonia has three national parks that feature stunning waterfalls, magnificent mountain peaks, and glacial lakes that will take your breath away.
