Travel Advisory: Warning on Illegal
South African citizens travelling abroad are strongly
advised to take care not to become involved in activities which may be, or are,
illegal in foreign countries. Please remember, once you leave South Africa, you
are not protected by South African laws and constitutional rights. If you are
arrested abroad, the South African Government cannot get you out of prison or
demand your release. At most, your government can intercede with local authorities
to try and ensure that your rights under the laws of the country in which you
were arrested are fully observed. It can also attempt to ensure that you are treated
humanely, i.e., according to those international agreements to which the country
in which you have been arrested, has acceded.
Please note that the South
African Government views crimes - particularly those involving illegal drugs,
mercenary activities, the traffic in humans or small arms or the abuse of women
and children - in a most serious light.
