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