The flight leaves South Africa at 9pm tonight. 15 Officials from the Department of Health and the army on board.
The flight will first stop in the Philippines before heading to Wuhan, China.
The South Africans will board and land in South Africa on March 13.
None of the people have the virus and, according to Health Minister Mkhize, they show no symptoms, although they are currently in isolation in Wuhan. When they arrive, they will be further placed in isolation.
Mkhize has ensured that the quarantine facility will be strictly controlled to ensure that people living nearby are not exposed in any way.
President Cyril Ramaphosa ordered last week that these South Africans should be brought back.
