Smoking laws & regulations
Smoking has been banned in public areas in South Africa, but there usually are designated areas where you can smoke. The law also prohibits anyone under 16 from entering a designated smoking area and from buying cigarettes.
The South African smoking laws prohibit smoking in public spaces, which are defined as 'any indoor, enclosed or partially enclosed area which is open to the public and includes a workplace, a club and a public conveyance'.
All University of Pretoria buildings (including the residences) are smoke-free buildings. There are demarcated areas where smoking is allowed.
So throughout your travels in South Africa, be sensitive to these regulations, and look out for prevalent 'No Smoking' signage.
