Johannesburg's OR Tambo International Airport's Immigration desk is processing just over 3600 people per hour.

Other airports around the country have expereinced the rush of the World Cup fans following their teams around the country. Some airports are operating throughout the night.

In preparation for World Cup mania people are still enquiring about Vuvuzelas; Goggolos, Supporter scarves, soccer shirts and other soccer supporter gear.

Vuvuzelas to be silent during Anthems

The govrenment urged soccer fans not to blow vuvuzelas while the anthems are being played in stadiums during the world cup 2010. The government calls on South African to stand to attention with thier hand splaced on thier sides while singing the national anthem. This guideline is applied indefinately but the appeal is now being made to ensure that the world cup stadium audiences show the neccesarry respect for the South African Anthem and those of participating countries.
