SAT: International tourism still down by over 70% in SA compared to pre-Covid-19
The level of international tourism in South Africa is still more than 70% lower than before the Covid-19 pandemic hit the country, according to the latest SAT report on the first three months of 2021.
SAT CEO Sisa Ntshona says these findings are in line with the global tourism market.
Ntshona says the resumption of international travel remains on hold amid large-scale vaccination rollouts across the world.
International tourists are only expected to return to South Africa in 2022.
