Vos highlighted a campaign the city is spearheading to enact a remote worker visa to give South Africa more appeal to a bigger category of tourists.
He further told the minister of an urgency to remove the country from the UK’s “red list” that dissuades travelers from going to listed countries because of high quarantine costs.
Vos also told Sisulu to put pressure on the Transport Department to approve Delta Airlines from the US request to fly directly to Cape Town.
