By Andrew Murenha

THE British Government has issued a travel warning on 3 December 2020, advising its citizens “against all but essential travel to the whole of Zimbabwe based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks”.

The Zimbabwe Voice publishes part of the travel advice below:

Zimbabwe opened its land borders and international airports to tourists in addition to Zimbabwean nationals and valid permit holders on 1 December 2020.

To enter Zimbabwe through one of its international airports you must possess a negative COVID-19 test result, issued no more than 48 hours before the start of your journey.

If you do not have a negative test result, or if you exhibit COVID-19 symptoms on arrival, you will be detained at a holding facility where you will be required to pay US$60.00 for a test.

To enter Zimbabwe through one of its land borders you must possess a negative COVID-19 test result, issued no more than 48 hours before your arrival at the border.

If you do not have a negative test result, or if you exhibit COVID-19 symptoms on arrival, you will be denied entry into Zimbabwe.

People arriving in Zimbabwe are subject to a 14-day quarantine period. If you arrive with a negative COVID-19 test issued within 48 hours of arrival, or test negative at the airport, you may self-isolate at a designated address.

If you test positive for COVID-19 at the airport, you will have to quarantine in a government-approved facility. ■
