South Africans wanting to buy alcohol can do so between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Thursday.

This was one of the level 3 regulations announced by co-operative governance and traditional affairs minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma on Thursday afternoon.

The regulations state that the sale of cigarettes, tobacco and related products continued to be banned.

Alcohol can only be sold at businesses with valid liquor licences, and you cannot buy the alcohol from where you buy it.

Other regulations included:

  • Transportation and distribution of liquor to licences premises can begin from Friday June 29;
  • Consumption of alcohol at the place of purchase is prohibited;
  • Sale of alcohol on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and public holidays is prohibited; and
  • No special liquor licences will be issued for events.
