The move, announced earlier this week has been celebrated.

Cape Town Tourism says the UK has always been a vital source market for South Africa. According to EWN, Stats South Africa reported that the UK ranked number one on the overseas visitor list in 2019 and 2020, indicating that travellers and expats from the UK choose South Africa, and in particular, the city of Cape Town, as their preferred holiday destination.
