With less than three weeks till Christmas day the Swaziland Ministry of Home Affairs and their counterparts in South Africa have announced an extension of the operation hours for three major border posts into Swaziland. With thousands of returning students, workers and tourists this news brings a sigh of relief to most.
The three border posts that will have their hours extended during the festive season are the Ngwenya-Oshoek, Mahamba and Mananga-Border Gate borders.
The scheduled extension hours are:
- From the 12th to the 19th December 2011: Ngwenya/Oshoek will run from 0700hrs to 1200hrs midnight.
- From the 20th to the 24th December 2011: Ngwenya/Oshoek will run for 24 hours.
- From the 22nd to the 24th December 2011: Mahamba border post will run from 0600hrs to 1200hrs midnight.
- From the 20th December 2011 to the 2nd of January 2012: Mananga border will run from 0700hrs to 2000hrs.
All other border posts leading into Swaziland will not be affected by the extension and will operate as usual.
