    Sorry guys, but borders are still closed.

    Sani was closed as well as Ramatsediso, he had to walk in.

    He was allowed to exit at Qachas nek, but it seems that it is only for residents, as he told me that it was open but it was closed

    He had to have a swab done to exit and was telling how they stuck this long, very long he says, stick up his nose and he could feel it at the back of his head, his most scary experience ever

    Going to Underberg nextweek, I thought I would support those doing business in Sani Pass and contribute to the economy. Politicians are a serious problem here, Lesotho has not reported any cases since Friday, so far they have 1800 cases and 42 deaths, but the economy is bleeding, I really don't understand these politicians thinking.

    Can anyone confirm this? Would be great news.

    Yes, opened last week.

    But you have to have a COVID test done, for your account when entering, a very long stick up the nose.

    Good day all

    I need to send a technician to Maseru for work. He'll be passing through the Maseru bridge border crossing.

    What are the current COVID-19 testing requirements? The R170 rapid test or the full Lancet swab test - i believe to be taken within 72 hrs prior to crossing border.

    Anyone know what the requirements are?

    Full PCR test not older than 72 hrs. But the test result is valid for 14 days so will be allowed back into SA with same test (if returning within that 14 days). I haven't heard that they do the rapid test yet.

    Some guys have been allowed in with the date of the report being 72 hrs (IE the actual swab was taken over 72 hrs) but it depends on the official at the border...

    Hi all,

    Lesotho has gone to lockdown level Orange - equivalent to SA level 4.

    Borders are closed except for emergency services and returning Basotho.

    We should hear later today what this means for us expats working here...

    Lesotho is on a hard lockdown, not sure when it ends. Only essential services are allowed to travel. There is big police and army presence stopping vehicles. You need permits from Nacosec and employer to be allowed to travel. I am travelling there to Koa mine on Monday, have 3 permits and letters to allow me to pass.

    Thus wouldn't advise trying to travel around Lesotho as a normal visitor. Will try check when it is supposed to end.

    As a visitor I would still be hesitant to travel. I was issued another letter from the Lesotho government giving specific permission for our company employees and contractors to travel, wilth all our names on the list
