BOTTOM LINE 

Regardless of the negative activities of few bad elements damaging Nigeria image in the Mandela Nation and some misguided and never do better things people over there in South Africa killing and terrorising immigrants, the relationship between Nigeria and South Africa remain strong, and the Mandela Nation is still one of the countries Nigerians travelled to frequently. And South Africans are also coming here from time to time and a large number.

The best advice from facts36.com is that, please when you’re in South Africa you play by the rules, and be a good ambassador of your country.

THE CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC – SOUTH AFRICA IS BADLY AFFECTED

The true situation of things concerning the coronavirus pandemic is that South Africa is badly affected. Currently, it’s not advisable to travel to South Africa. The second wave of coronavirus pandemic is ravaging the country and there is no short term solution in sight.  If other countries could be rejecting flights from South Africa due to the second wave,  the best thing is to put on hold temporarily your planned visit to South Africa. You may enter but your exit to other countries may be very difficult.
