Level 4 Lockdown: MOVING HOUSE or moving to new business premises permitted.

Those moving should do so between 7 May and 7 June 2020. But remember, travel across provincial, metropolitan, or district boundaries will require a permit from the police.

These are regulations published and gazetted by Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma. Read the statement below.

STATEMENT BY THE MINISTER OF COGTA ON THE AMENDMENT OF DIRECTIONS FOR ONCE OFF MOVEMENT OF GOODS AND PERSONS.

The Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA), Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma, designated under section 3 of the Disaster Management Act, 2002 (Act No. 57 of 2002) has in terms of section 27(2) of the Disaster Management Act, 2002 issued and gazetted a set of amendments of the directions to address, prevent and combat the spread of COVID-19 in South Africa.

These set of Directions are called the Directions on the once-off movement of persons and the transportation of goods for purposes of relocation. The once off movement will commence on 07 May 2020.

The directions will allow individuals and businesses to move premises within, and across provincial, metropolitan or district boundaries during the period of alert level 4.

 Citizens who were not able to do so due to the lockdown will be allowed to move houses with goods. This includes new lease agreements which were entered into before or during the lockdown period; or in instances where the property transfer occurred before the lockdown period. These directions are limited to a change in place of residence, including the transport of goods to a new place of residence, within the Republic.

Anyone who wishes to take advantage of this period to move, with their goods within, or across provincial, metropolitan or district boundaries, must obtain a permit from the station commander of a police station or a person designated by him or her. 

All removals must be performed in compliance with the COVID-19 regulations and the relevant directions issued by the Minister of Transport.

A copy of the gazetted directions can be accessed here.
