The Minister of Home Affairs invites interested persons and organizations to make written submissions on the Draft One-Stop Border Post (OSBP) Policy.

Comments must be submitted by no later than Sunday, 28 February 2021 to osbppolicy@dha.gov.za

The OSBP seeks to harmonise the movement of people and goods between South Africa’s land ports of entry and its neighbouring countries. The proposals in the policy seek to address congestion which results in delays, particularly by cross-border travellers and traders. 

This policy gives effect to the One-Stop Border Framework that was adopted by Cabinet in 2018. At a continental level, the policy contributes to the Presidential Infrastructure Champion Initiative, which advances interconnectivity amongst African countries to address infrastructure deficit and boost intra-Africa trade.
