Level 4 of the national lockdown means that students will be able to move between provinces with a permit if they have to return to university or college. This was announced by Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma who was telling the country about the new regulations that will apply when the lockdown is relaxed, very slightly, from the 1st of May.

As the country moves from level 5 of lockdown to a very slightly relaxed level 4, one thing that stays in place is the ban on moving between provinces.  This is only allowed with permission for a particular reason, including returning to work or returning to college or university.  This shouldn't be necessary for most students as learning has gone online with students only expected back at campus from the start of September.  But even that depends on the progress of the Covid-19 situation in the country. 

The Minister didn't give details of how students would get permission to move between provinces but it is important to do this as roadblocks have been situated at most major provincial roads. People moving between provinces without formal permission can be arrested or fined.

More details of the school and higher education year ahead are expected on Monday when the two Ministers in charge of these areas will hold a briefing and explain the plans.

Careers Portal will publish full details of the plans for the rest of the academic year when they are announced by the Ministers on Monday afternoon.

These are the details of what level 4 means.
