• New SA visa regulations have airlines in a frenzy

    International airline Virgin Atlantic says it expects to have to turn some foreign passengers away at airports when new regulations come in on Monday, and that airlines are going to suffer financially as a result. From next week, people travelling in and out of South Africa will be required to have unabridged birth certificates for the children travelling with them, and to have affidavits from parents if they're not with the children. The travel industry has strongly criticised the plans, but Home Affairs Minister Malusi Gigaba has promised they will be implemented this time around. Virgin Atlantic country manager Liezl Gericke says they're still battling to explain these rules to international markets.

    In what can only be described as a James Bond 007-like rescue operation, Western Cape Premier Helen Zille and her journalist accomplice saved two German tourists, from sleeping on the streets of Cape Town. The rescue mission started off with Netwerk24 reporter, Marelize Barnard, offering to assist the two lost German tourists in a supermarket in Buitengracht street after dark on Friday 22 May. The tourists, Mr Lee and Mrs Kim, were not only completely lost in translation - since they did not speak a word of English - but also completely lost, geographically speaking. After attempting to find their mystery hotel by driving to various popular hotels in the vicinity, Barnard decided to call for backup. Barnard, who speaks no German, frantically scrolled through her contact list on her cellphone in search of someone with at least some comprehension of the German language.
