The United States, Britain and Canada now all have travel advisories for South Africa in place, warning visitors of the high crime rates.

The advisory warns of violent crimes such as armed robbery, rape, carjacking, mugging and smash-and-grab attacks on vehicles, as well as civil unrest such as protests and strikes.
