UK’s decision to remove SA from red list a boost to the tourism industry.

Cape Town – South Africa's most-visited destination, the V&A Waterfront is expecting to see more visitors following the United Kingdom’s decision to remove the country from its red list.The UK cited, among others, the presence of the Beta variant and did not recognise vaccines administered in the country.

“We are excited that travel is now allowed,” said V&A Waterfront’s executive marketing manager Tinyiko Mageza. “The entire industry celebrated the move and 30% of Waterfront visitors are international and 40% of those are from the UK.” Mageza added it would be disingenuous not to admit that they are looking forward to when things would go back to normal so they can go back to running the business without disturbance.“This decision brings an end to a baffling diplomatic shamble that risked the economic recovery of the tourism and hospitality sector in the Western Cape. The UK is a key source market for tourism in the Western Cape.

Plans are already under way to give visitors a truly warm, and creative African welcome this year during the festive season. Two years ago the V&A Waterfront questioned its approach to the annual celebration with a view to challenging age-old narratives. Why not an African Christmas that benefits local communities?
