Durban - Measures have been put in place to prevent possible congestion at the country's busiest ports of entry over the festive period, the Border Control Operational Co-ordinating Committee said on Thursday.


Law enforcement would be increased and more people would be employed to ensure the smooth movement of travellers and goods, spokesman Patrick Moeng said.

"The senior managers at the ports of entry will convene daily joint sessions to closely monitor the execution of the festive season plans, trends in the movement of goods and people and, if deemed necessary, employ contingency plans at the busiest ports of entry across the country," Moeng said.
