    Has there been a lifting of the 10 quarantine for tourists? Are those who have had the virus and/or vaccine required to quarantine? I would like to visit for one week – is there a policy for those who will not be staying in-country for less than 10 days?

    • #visitzimbabwe May 28, 2021 Administrator

      Hie

      Yes the 10 days quarantine for tourist was lifted yesterday.If you have a negative Covid pcr report and you not coming from a high risk country you will not have to go through 10 days quarantine. You can actually visit your destination and return back home in less than 10 days.

      Thank you and have a good day.

    We are looking forward to visiting Zimbabwe, starting at Victoria Falls. We will be traveling from the US with two layovers.
    Is the 48hrs for the covid test from when we start traveling from the US or is it from when our flight leaves SA to fly into Zimbabwe.
    There is some confusion with all the different rules with different countries. Thank you in advance

    • #visitzimbabwe May 28, 2021 Administrator

      Hie

      We would love to have you in Zimbabwe to explore all it’s wonders. The 48 hrs for covid test we consider is from when your flight leaves south africa to fly into Zimbabwe.

      Thank you and have a good day.

    Have there been any recent changes regarding testing for fully vaccinated tourists?

    • #visitzimbabwe June 17, 2021 Administrator

      Good day

      Fully vaccinated tourist still need to have a negative PCR report to get into Zimbabwe

    Good day

    Where can we find a list of high risk countries? Is South Africa considered high risk?

    Thank you

    • #visitzimbabwe June 16, 2021 Administrator

      India is the only country considered as high risk.

    I am an American who would be coming to Zimbabwe after a two day stopover in South Africa to get another COVID test. Would I have to quarantine for 10 days in Zimbabwe?

    • #visitzimbabwe June 16, 2021 Administrator

      Good day

      If you have a negative PCR report you will not have to be in quarantine for 10 days.

      Regards

    Hi, we plan to take a direct flight from the U.S. to South Africa first, stay there for a week, and then a direct flight from J-berg to Victoria Falls in early August. Would we have to quarantine upon arrival in Victoria Falls? (Fully vaccinated U.S. citizens)

    • #visitzimbabwe June 17, 2021 Administrator

      Hie

      If you have negative COVID-19 test obtained within 48 hours of departure from South Africa, you will not be subject to the 10 day quarantine upon arrival in Victoria Falls.

  8. Brad T. June 15, 2021 Subscriber

    I am fully vaccinated. Do I still need to have a Covid test prior to traveling to Zimbabwe?

    • #visitzimbabwe June 16, 2021 Administrator

      Good day

      Yes you need to have a Covid test.

  9. Jackie Starr June 17, 2021 Subscriber

    How much does it cost for a PCR covid test in South Africa to enter Zimbabwe?

  10. Roy Rensburg July 15, 2021 Subscriber

    I am planning a road trip from SA to Kasane Botswana in October 2021. Would I require a PCR test there in Botswana to cross over to Victoria Falls?

  11. James July 20, 2021 Subscriber

    Hello, is it now allowed to enter Zimbabwe by car from Botswana (vaccinated + PCR test)? Or is entry still restricted to air travel?
    Many thanks for advising.

    • #visitzimbabwe July 27, 2021 Administrator

      Hie

      Unfortunately our land borders are closed under the current lockdown restrictions.

    Hi, travelling to Zimbabwe by air and then will do self drive inland to Victoria falls is this allowed?

    • #visitzimbabwe July 27, 2021 Administrator

      Hie

      International airports are open to travellers, but intercity travel is restricted for now. So unfortunately i do not think you will be able to self drive to Victoria Falls.

    Please, what is the validity period of the COVID-19 PCR test for inbound travellers to Zimbabwe?
    I want to travelling on 13th Sept.

    Thank you.

    • #visitzimbabwe September 8, 2021 Administrator

      Good day
      Covid PCR test is valid within 48 hours from the date of departure.

  14. Ruva August 20, 2021 Subscriber

    Hello. I’m a Zimbabwean national and would like to travel back home to Zimbabwe. Is the 10day quarantine required for a fully vaccinated person coming from Malaysia? Or I would just need a negative PCR test result?

    • #visitzimbabwe September 8, 2021 Administrator

      Hie Ruva

      With a negative PCR test result there would be no need for 10 day quarantine.

  15. Mluleki Maphosa August 22, 2021 Subscriber

    I’m fully vaccinated and coming from US, with a 16hour overnight layover in SA. Total time from destination to zimbabwe is 56 hours. Is My COVID-19 pcr test I take in US still valid?

    • #visitzimbabwe September 8, 2021 Administrator

      Hie

      No it will not be valid, you will have to take another test in South Africa.

  16. John August 25, 2021 Subscriber

    Hello, for Americans who are fully vaccinated, flying from the UK to Harare and arrive with a negative PCR test, is there a mandatory quarantine or not? Any other restrictions?
    Thank you.

  17. Tj August 29, 2021 Subscriber

    Hello,

    We are leaving USA on November 27 and arriving in a Zimbabwe on November 29. We are taking 3 flights with a layover (11 hours) in Jo’burg.

    In onder to get our results before we depart we have to have a COVID PCR test complete on November 25 (48 hours before we departing USA)

    My question is: Does the Zimbabwe requirement for a Covid PCR test 48 hour before “Departure” refer to the departure from USA or departure from Jo’burg?

    • #visitzimbabwe September 8, 2021 Administrator

      Hie

      We will be referring to departure from Johannesburg, in South Africa.

  18. Cheryl September 8, 2021 Subscriber

    I am flying from Vancouver, Canada to Victoria Falls and had booked a PCR covid test for within the required 48 hour period, however I was just advised that due to a new Canada national holiday the only lab that processes the PCR test will be closed and my appointment has been cancelled. This leaves me with only 2 options: Either take the test slightly earlier (resulting in 52 hours before departure) or take the test later and not have the test result when I get on the plane (if that is possible). Do flights to Zimbabwe require passengers to board without PCR test results? Can I get a PCR test once at the airport in Victoria Falls?

    • #visitzimbabwe September 8, 2021 Administrator

      Hie

      Upon arrival you wil required to present a negative PCR COVID-19 Clearance Certificate issued by a recognized facility within 48 hours from the date of departure. So 48 hrs will be counted from the day of your departure from canada and not the date you had your covid test done.

  19. Kassandra Callahan September 10, 2021 Subscriber

    We are traveling from the USA via Johannesburg. We leave the US on 10/20 arriving at JNB on the 21st. We travel to Zimbabwe on 10/22. We are all vaccinated. Do we need to quarantine? We will all have test results with us.

    • #visitzimbabwe September 15, 2021 Administrator

      Hie

      You don’t need to quarantine if you have a negative PCR Test result, but you need to have another test done in Johannesburg before you fly to Zimbabwe.

  20. Peta September 12, 2021 Subscriber

    I am flying to Harare from Atlanta to London, London to Johannesburg to Harare flight beginning on Sept 15th. I will have a same day PCR test in Atlanta – will that cover me to enter Harare on Sept 17th? I am also fully vaccinated.

    • #visitzimbabwe September 15, 2021 Administrator

      Hie

      We require a PCR test that is within 48 hrs from your date of departure if it is a direct flight, i would advise that you get another test done in Johannesburg before you fly to Harare

  21. Zintle September 13, 2021 Subscriber

    Can I drive to Zimbabwe from Namibia through Botswana as long as I produce a negative PCR COVID-19 Clearance Certificate not older than 48 hours?

    • #visitzimbabwe September 15, 2021 Administrator

      Hie Zintle

      Our land borders are closed for international travel, unless you are a returning resident.

  22. Resh September 14, 2021 Subscriber

    Good day. Please advise if your borders are open for international travel, and what is required for entry. Do travelers need to be vaccinated, or is a negative PCR test enough?

    • #visitzimbabwe September 15, 2021 Administrator

      Good day

      Our borders are still not open for international travel.
