About Cape Town

The beautiful city of Cape Town, on the slopes of Table Mountain, is the setting for the conference experience. Cape Town is ideally placed to welcome delegates from Africa and around the world, with many international airlines offering direct flights to Cape Town or flights connecting in Johannesburg. July is winter in Cape Town, and you can expect beautiful, wind-free days, with temperatures in the region of 18°C during the day, going down to about 7°C at night. There is a strong possibility of some rainy days.

Visa information

On entry to South Africa, a visitor’s permit is required by international travellers who have permanent residence outside South Africa and who wish to visit the country on a temporary basis for tourism or business purposes for a period of 90 days or less. ISPH 2019 will provide you with a visa invitation letter if required. The permit’s period of validity is calculated from the date of entry into the country. Requirements for visitor’s visas differ from country to country and each application is treated as an individual case. Please make enquiries with your nearest South African mission or consulate to see if you need to apply for a visa.
