People who are allowed into South Africa are still subject to the prescribed screening procedures and isolation or quarantine rules, as the case may be, which include:

  1. provision of a valid certificate of a negative COVID-19 test obtained not more than 72 hours before the date of travel; and
  2. in the event of failure to submit a certificate as proof of a negative COVID-19 test, such person will be required to do an antigen test at his or her own cost and if he or she tests positive to COVID-19, he or she will be required to quarantine at his or her own costs.
  3. The doctors in Skukuza do Covid-19 testing, they charge R750 for consultation and R850 for the test.  The results come back within 48hours.

Nombolo Mdhluli Conference Centre



Every three years since 1981 the World Association of Copepodologists (WAC) holds an international conference called the International Conference on Copepoda or the “ICOC.”

These have become the most important global gatherings for all researchers and students of copepods. Each conference gives participants the chance to meet fellow researchers, talk with students and experts, borrow material, and plan collaborations.

Each meeting is unique, teeming with the individuality and culture of the host nation.

See you at the 14th ICOC in 
South Africa in 2022!
