South Africa Travel Advisory

Issued by US Department of State

Apr 05, 2018

Exercise increased caution in South Africa due to crime and drought.

Violent crime, such as armed robbery, rape, carjacking, mugging, and "smash-and-grab" attacks on vehicles, is common. There is a higher risk of violent crime in the central business districts of major cities after dark.

The South African government declared a national state of disaster due to drought in the country’s Western, Eastern, and Northern Cape Provinces. Water restrictions in Cape Town, which limit household water use to 50 liters per person per day, remain in effect. Water supplies in some other areas may also be affected. Please see our Alerts for up-to-date information.

Read the Safety and Security section on the Country Information page.
