5 Getting to South Africa O.R Tambo Johannesburg International Airport is the major international airport in South Africa receiving flights from all five continents. Flights from the UK and Europe are usually overnight with a flight from London to Johannesburg taking approximately 12-hours. Direct flights between the USA and Johannesburg are approximately 15-hours. South Africa has an excellent network of domestic carriers offering flights to all major city centres throughout South Africa. Travelling Around South Africa As a rule, public transport is not reliable and transfers to and from the airport have been offered free of charge by the organizers. Ensure that we have your flight information in order to schedule your transfer times. Should you wish to extend your stay and explore, South Africa is a vast country and areas of interest are widespread. It is often best to consider combining both flying and driving to make the most of your time. It is advisable to hire a car or make use of the Uber application to get around cities and attractions. If you would rather not drive long distances, consider one of the local bus companies such as Intercape or Greyhound - tickets can be booked at Computicket. The Baz Bus is an affordable hop-on-hop-off option for backpackers. Alternatively, join an organised tour to suit your interests and your schedule. Time Differences: South Africa is two hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time throughout the year. It is therefore an hour ahead of Central European Winter Time, seven hours ahead of Eastern Standard Winter Time and seven hours behind Australian Central Time. Passports & Visas Travelling to South Africa is fairly easy and hassle-free. All foreign nationals must be in possession of a valid passport and in some instances a visa is required. Travellers from Europe, most Commonwealth countries, the USA, Scandinavia and Japan do not need to apply for a visa for vacation purposes. A free entry permit for a period of up to 90-days will be issued on arrival. For visitors wishing to stay longer, an official visa needs to be applied for. Tax Value-Added-Tax (VAT) is charged on most items. Foreign tourists to South Africa can have their 14% VAT refunded provided that the value of the items purchased exceeds R VAT is refunded at the point of departure and receipts from purchases must be kept and produced. Currency & Banks The South African currency unit is the Rand, denoted by the symbol R. One hundred cents makes up one R1 (one Rand). Currently the Rand is weaker than many European currencies as well as the dollar, making travelling to South Africa affordable by international standards. Visitors will more than likely find eating out and shopping particularly affordable and of an excellent quality. Foreign currency can be exchanged

6 at local banks and Bureaux de Change. Credit cards are widely accepted including American Express, Diners Club, MasterCard and Visa. Banks are open Monday to Friday from 9:00-15:30 and on Saturdays from 8:30-11:00. Post Offices Post Offices are generally open Monday to Friday from 8:30-16:30 and on Saturdays from 8:00-12:00. Shopping Most major shopping centres and malls are open 7 days a week from 09:00 to 17:00. In some cases, Sunday shopping hours are from 09:00-14:00 and in some smaller towns shops are closed on a Sunday. Tipping / Gratuity As a rule South African restaurants do not include a service charge in the total bill/ cheque. It is customary to leave a 10% tip/ gratuity for good service, or more for excellent service. Driving A valid driver's permit is required to rent a car in South Africa and all drivers must carry a valid driver's licence at all times of driving. The wearing of seatbelts is compulsory and driving while talking on a mobile phone is illegal (a hands free kit must be used). Drinking and driving is strictly prohibited and strict fines apply. The permissible limit for alcohol consumption is about one glass of wine for the average woman and perhaps 1.5 or two for the average or large man. Speed limits are 120kmph on the open road, 100kmph on smaller roads and between 60 and 80kmph in towns and residential areas. Road signs will indicate the speed limit. Speeding is strictly enforced with cameras and fines are high. Road Safety South Africa has an excellent infrastructure of good quality roads, however the country is large and travelling distances can be long. If you are planning a self-drive holiday, make sure that you allow yourself ample time to reach destinations and make provisions for stop-overs en-route. One of the biggest causes of road accidents on long-distances is fatigue and loss of concentration. In general, try to avoid driving in unfamiliar areas after dark. Do not stop in remote areas after dark and always park in well-lit, designated parking areas. Health & Medical Care South Africa has excellent health services and doctors with some of the best training in the world. There are adequate hospitals and medical care facilities throughout the country. However, visitors should ensure that they have sufficient funds or medical insurance to cover the fees of private facilities. As a rule, the tap water in South Africa is safe to drink as all water has been treated. Hygiene and food preparation are of excellent standards and fresh fruit and vegetables are safe to eat. Johannesburg is not a Malaria area. It is advised to secure travel insurance before departing your country of residence. Vaccinations No vaccinations are required when visiting South Africa and immunisation against cholera and small pox are not required. However, if you are entering South Africa from a yellow fever zone, you must be in possession of a valid international yellow fever inoculation certificate. Personal Safety As in any foreign country, visitors are advised to be aware and alert when travelling to avoid falling prey to petty theft and crime. Most areas and attractions of South Africa can be safely visited. However, use common sense, be discreet with expensive camera equipment and jewellery and be aware of your surroundings. Avoid walking in deserted areas after dark and when driving, always park in a well-lit and designated parking area. If you have any doubts, speak to your hosts and ask for their advice on potential areas to avoid. Disabled Facilities This is an area in which South Africa needs to improve on. Generally speaking many accommodation providers have wheelchair ramps and bathroom facilities for the disabled. Most public buildings cater for

7 wheelchair access and most sports stadiums have areas accessible to wheelchairs. National Parks usually have at least one wheelchair accessible chalet or room. Please advise the organizers should you require disability services so that we can make prior arrangements on your behalf. Electricity South Africa's electricity supply: 220/230 volts AC 50 Hz Most plugs have three round pins but some plugs with two smaller pins are also found on appliances. Adaptors can be purchased but may be in short supply at the hotel. US-made appliances may need a transformer. Language South Africa has 11 official languages one of them being English. The majority of the population is able to speak and understand English even if it is not their first language. South Africans use a lot of local 'slang' - some of those you are more than likely to come into contact with are listed below: Howzit - A traditional South African greeting meaning "How are you?" or "How are things?" Boet - "Boet" is the Afrikaans word for "brother" and is often used as a term of affection between male friends. Café - the local corner shop selling milk, bread, newspaper and cigarettes etc. Just now - If a South African tells you they will do something "just now", they mean they'll do it in the near future - not immediately. Now now - This is not intended to comfort but means shortly, as in: "I will be there now now." Lekker - An Afrikaans word meaning nice. It is often used in association with food, as in: "That meal was lekker." Rooibos - A popular South African tea made in the Cape. Rooibos is an Afrikaans word meaning "red bush". When people speak of rooibos they are referring to rooibos tea. Braai - the South African equivalent of a barbeque where meat is cooked over an open fire. A popular weekend and social pastime. Boerewors/Wors - a type of spicy sausage made from beef or lamb. Generally it is quite thick and is cooked on a braai/bbq or served dried. Smoking Law prohibits smoking in most indoor public spaces, including airports and railway stations. Look out for signage to indicate designated smoking areas. Most restaurants have designated smoking and nonsmoking areas. Travel safely and we hope you make wonderful memories during your stay in Johannesburg, South Africa! ON-SITE CONTACT: HiSide Events will be on-site to assist with all your requirements before and during the conference. Feel free to contact the project lead for the conference below.
