Lesotho reverted to “Purple Level” restrictions on 1 March 2021. Movement across the Lesotho border remains prohibited except for:
- Essential goods and services.
- Migrant workers.
- Medical emergencies (with permits).
- Funerals for parents, children, siblings, and grandparents.
- Daily commuting students and teachers.
The South African Government announced that its land border between South Africa and Lesotho is open despite Lesotho keeping their restrictions in place.
Visitors arriving in the UK who have been in or transited through Lesotho 10 days prior will not be allowed to enter the UK. British and Irish citizens, and third-country nationals with residence rights in the UK, arriving in the UK from Lesotho, need to self-isolate upon their return.
Lesotho is currently not allowing any tourists to cross the border.
