Presumably policies that include covid 19 cover for quarantine costs and treatment....a lot of travel policies I believe dont cover these as were from before the chinese virus fkd us all over....so you have to be specific and make sure the policy you purchase includes these

Dealing w/ Clients' ins. companies for years (often having to sue them for coverage. ???,) I am 100% certain the ins. co. will sell you a $1,000.01 policy and then, upon your trip being cancelled due to Corona, you will be the benefactor of $0.01 upon paying them your $1,000.00 deductable. :) The PH will simply hold or refund your $, so what's the big worry? If you pass on, the Life Insurance kicks in and the PH keeps your $ and we score your guns at an estate sale. -The breaks

Insurance companies are providing as a few countries require this. And Emirates was giving cover if you needed to quarantine or needed treatment if you caught it and travelled with them

International travel: WC proposes alternatives to risk-based approach


On Wednesday 30 September, government announced a lengthy list of “banned” countries under Level 1 lockdown. Various ministers took the podium saying that those countries were considered as “high-risk” for international travel based on World Health Organisation (WHO) guidelines. It further stipulated that the remainder of countries would be classified as medium-risk or low-risk. Western Cape Minister of Finance and Economic Opportunities David Maynier, however, has slammed government for its risk-based approach saying that it would only do harm to the tourism and hospitality sectors.

The government’s rules, however, only apply to inbound visitors. Therefore, the international travel list does not stop South Africans from going to one of the countries in the high-risk category.
TOURISM SECTOR’S SURVIVAL DEPENDANT ON INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL
Maynier said the tourism and hospitality sector’s survival is dependent on international leisure travellers in the summer season and for this reason, it is critical that government look at “smart ways” to open international borders, especially for our key source markets, so that jobs can be saved in the Western Cape.
“And so, we will be engaging with national government and preparing a further submission proposing an alternative to the risk-based approach for international travel,” said Maynier.
Maynier said it makes little sense to exclude leisure travellers in this way.

“Indeed, it is unfair to restrict leisure travellers from high-risk countries as there is simply no greater risk of transmission based on the purpose of travel,” he said.
TRAVEL AND TOURISM CAN RESUME SAFELY
Maynier said South Africa’s airlines, hospitality and tourism companies have shown that travel and tourism can resume safely and, with stringent health and safety systems in place and, therefore, it should not be necessary to impose additional country-based travel restrictions.

This lot is so far out of their depth, its not even funny. Still think that we will have the entire 2021 season to operate.


  • The list of countries South Africa considers at high risk for the coronavirus – and from which tourists are banned – dropped from 60 to 22 on Monday.
  • The new red list still includes India, the UK, and the USA.
  • Germany and Canada are among the seven countries newly listed.
  • Visitors from the remaining high-risk countries will now be welcome as long as they stay for three months or more, the department of home affairs says.
  • For more stories go to www.BusinessInsider.co.za.

South Africa's red list, of countries from which tourists are not welcome, now stands at 22, down from an initial 60.

But still on the list are several countries that represent important markets for South Africa's tourist offerings.

Countries on the African continent are automatically excluded from the list, and it does not apply to business travellers, or others who are not travelling for leisure, including diplomats and sportspeople.

It will now also no longer apply to longer-term visitors, the department of home affairs (DHA) said in a statement.


The government recognises "that there are a number of regular visitors from mainly European countries that have been accustomed to long periods of visitation to our country during our summer season when it is winter in the Northern Hemisphere," said the DHA.


"Most of them own properties in the country. We appreciate the significant economic contribution that they make through their activities in the country. To this end, we will also allow visitors, in whichever category, who are coming to stay for a three months period or more subject to Covid-19 protocols."

The government has not disclosed exactly how it came up with the initial list, or how it determined the new list.
"The review of the list of high risk countries was done in such a way that it strikes a balance between saving lives and protecting livelihoods," the DHA said. The
Here is the full list of high-risk countries, from which tourists may not visit South Africa, as of 19 October:

  • Argentina
  • Bangladesh
  • Belgium
  • Brazil
  • Canada
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • France
  • Germany
  • India
  • Indonesia
  • Iran
  • Iraq
  • Italy
  • Mexico
  • The Netherlands
  • Peru
  • The Philippines
  • Russia
  • Spain
  • The United Kingdom
  • The United States of America
Border officials are instructed to turn away tourists from those countries should they reach South Africa.

Seven of those countries did not appear on the initial red list, which means their tourists are effectively newly banned.

The countries from which tourists were previously welcome, but no more, are:

  • Bangladesh
  • Canada
  • Germany
  • Indonesia
  • Italy
  • The Philippines
  • Spain

Still hoping for some level of reason after the election, regardless of the winner.

So if a hunter from one of the newly banned countries has booked a hunt after October 19, he is now SOL. Sweet. Even more nice if he departed his home country on the 18th. What a mess. The RSA government couldn't run a lemonade stand.

I’ll offer a new service. Anyone that wants can be a 1099 contractor for my IT company to do WiFi inspections and testing at any hunting campsite. Since the list doesn’t apply to those traveling for business, it should work, right?

Isn’t there a loophole that if you spend 10 days in a country that isn’t red listed then you can fly on to SA?

Wonderful!! 1st thing this morning our Boy Prince extends the US/Canada border lockdown to Nov 21. Then my buddy gets a notice from Air Canada that his ticket for March to JNB has been cancelled. He should get his refund in 1-2 months.

As far as I understand, you are correct.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...

Good morning friends

i‘ve taken to heart a suggestion to tell my story about a lion hunt 37 years ago. ‘I don’t know, but am thinking there are site rules as to posting and file type. Three of the four posts (chapters?) are done, I took time away from here to write up the story. I have a couple of photos too.

also, I’m going to dissemble the rifles and see if Butch may have signed them. I’ll let you know.
