Johannesburg - Several border posts have increased their working hours to accommodate the large number of travellers during the festive season, the home affairs department said on Thursday.

Between December 1 and 22, 2.3 million people had entered and left the country, spokesman Ronnie Mamoepa said.

"In anticipation of increased traveller volumes, an additional 154 immigration officers have also been deployed to the Maseru, Lebombo and Durban harbour ports of entry."

The Mahamba, Mananga and Jeppes Reef border posts into Swaziland would be open from 7am to midnight, 7am to 8pm and 7am to 10pm respectively.

The Qachaa and Tellebridge border posts into Lesotho would open at 6am and close at 10pm. These times would be in effect from December 22 to 24.
