On 1 April, the government gazetted Statutory Instrument 67 of 2022, which allowed vaccinated travellers to enter or leave the country while those who are not vaccinated will have to produce a negative PCR certificate taken within 48 hours.
Fully vaccinated people are not required to take a pre-departure Covid19 PCR test.
All vaccines will be accepted as long as you have received all the required doses before travel.
-Passengers will be accepted for travel if they have a vaccination certificate or a negative -Covid19 PCR test certificate for a test taken not more than 48 hours before departure for Zimbabwe.
-People who do not present a valid vaccination certificate or negative COVID19 PCR test certificate will not be accepted for travel.
Returning to Zimbabwe
-The Zimbabwean cabinet recently resolved that it is no longer mandatory for a negative PCR certificate on arrival at ports of entry for both returning residents and visitors.
-The cabinet also stated that the only adequate certificate is the one that shows that the person is fully vaccinated against Covid-19 with any of the vaccines approved by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
-A returning resident or visitor that is not fully vaccinated is the one that is supposed to produce a negative PCR certificate at the port of entry.
-Fully vaccinated returning residents and visitors no longer need to undergo quarantine when they enter Zimbabwe.
If you’re not fully vaccinated
-If you’re not fully vaccinated, you must possess a negative Covid-19 certificate taken no more than 48 hours before your departure to Zimbabwe.
-Visitors or returning residents will be required to complete track and trace information on arrival in Zimbabwe.
If you’re transiting through Zimbabwe
Transiting is when you pass through one country on the way to your final destination.
-Transiting through Zimbabwe is permitted for travellers in possession of proof of vaccination (2 doses) by means of one or more of the World Health Organisation-approved vaccines or a valid negative test certificate of a COVID-19 PCR test taken no more than 48 hours prior to departure.
