South Africa sees surge in Indian traveller demand for visas post launch of recovery campaign

South African Tourism, along with 32 prominent South African exhibitors, introduced novel and upgraded destination offerings at SATTE 2022 held at India Expo Mart, Greater Noida.

The delegation included two key South African provinces namely Mpumalanga Tourism and Parks Agency, and Gauteng Tourism Authority, unique accommodation options, luxury experiences, offbeat activities, SMMEs, advanced MICE infrastructure providers, as well as adventure, wildlife and culinary capabilities. The collective South African exhibition concluded a multitude of productive meetings and new business partnerships with key players in the travel and tourism industry.

Earlier this year, the nation’s tourism board outlined a strategic roadmap to garner 64% YoY increase in Indian visitors in 2022. With over 4,600 Indian visitors travelling to South Africa during January and February 2022 itself, the tourism board is well on track to achieve or even surpass these targets, especially with the opening up of international air routes and easing of travel restrictions.

Neliswa Nkani, Hub Head – Middle East, India and South East Asia, South African Tourism said: “We are extremely delighted and humbled with the reception destination South Africa is receiving at SATTE 2022. We are also grateful to the trade fraternity for their support and conviction in the brand that enables us to roll-out offbeat and value-for-money itineraries. This year, we anticipate that MICE will be a driving force behind travel recovery and are happy to share that the tourism board is already seeing enquiries for large groups ranging from 2,000 to 4,000 pax from India.”
