The Belgian coach left the country on Sunday to do his refresher courses for his UEFA Pro Licence, along with France and Arsenal legend Thierry Henry, who is also Belgium's assistant coach to Roberto Martinez.
Eymael will now return at the end of the week, although his career with Celtic remains stuck in neutral gear after Polokwane City won their interdict against the coach.
"Yesterday we were at the Belgium national team centre doing refresher courses for our Pro licenses,” Eymael tells KickOff.com.
“In Europe it's not like in Africa where you can do a CAF license and work with it forever. Here you have to refresh. It's a lot of work, one work we had to do was to scout for the Belgium under 19 team.
“I’m leaving for South Africa tomorrow [Saturday] but I will only arrive there on Sunday because there are no direct flights."
