Remote working the new normal, it’s a new standard of productivity and that organisations will have to master to keep business afloat over the coming weeks.
In these uncertain times, we are all trying to come to terms with the ‘normal’, which is remote working. For some, this is the first time having to work from home and for these people, it’s all about embracing a new way of working.
What Corporate Traveller would like you inform you of during South Africa's National Lockdown:
South African Airways (SAA) has announced that it will immediately suspend all regional flights until 31 May 2020, in addition to all international flights suspended last week.
The countries were added to a list in a travel advisory issued by the Department of International Relations & Co-operation on Tuesday (March 18).
Effective 19 March 2020, Mauritius will close its borders to all foreign nationals. Three people in the country have tested positive for COVID-19. All passengers, including transits, will not be permitted to enter the country for a period of 14 days.
Australia has taken the decision to close their borders to all foreign travellers as of 21:00pm AEDT on 20 March 2020 (13:00pm RSA time). The travel ban comes into effect for non-citizens and non-residents.
Six high-risk countries – which, to date have enjoyed visa-free entry into South Africa – will now be required to apply for visas. They are Italy, South Korea, Spain, Germany, the United States and the United Kingdom.
The Kenyan government announced the travel ban following confirmation of three cases of COVID-19 in the country. Entry for people coming from any country with reported COVID-19 cases, including South Africa, is not permitted.
Batswana and residents returning from high-risk countries will be subjected to 14-day mandatory quarantine as per protocol. Issuance of Visa at Ports of entry and at all Embassies for any person from high-risk areas is suspended with immediate effect.
