Travellers urged to be aware of security challenges

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

Government has encouraged all South Africans travellers to be alert and sensitive to possible security challenges in areas they working in or are visiting.

This comes after government was informed of the kidnapping of a South African national in Burkina Faso.

“Government, through the South African missions in that region, is working with law enforcement agencies to attend to the situation. The family of the affected South African has been informed,” the Department of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO) said in a statement on Tuesday.

South Africans have also been reminded to register with the mission or with DIRCO when working or travelling abroad. –
