Zimbabwe Waives Negative PCR Test Requirement For Fully Vaccinated Visitors

Travellers to Zimbabwe are no longer required to present a negative PCR certificate on arrival at the country’s ports of entry.

Speaking during a post-Cabinet media briefing in Harare on Tuesday, the Minister of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services Monica Mutsvangwa said visitors will only be required to provide proof that they are fully vaccinated. She said:

Cabinet has resolved that returning residents and visitors are no longer required to present a negative PCR certificate on arrival at ports of entry.

Only a valid vaccination certificate showing that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 with any one of the WHO-approved vaccines will suffice.

This is in recognition of the declining COVID-19 new cases, most of which are now very mild or have no symptoms and increasing vaccination coverage.

A negative PCR certificate will only be a requirement if the returning resident or visitor is not fully vaccinated.

Government wishes to remind all citizens that COVID-19 is still with us and is, therefore, appealing to all Zimbabweans to continue adhering to the laid down World Health Organisation protocols at all times.

Recently Botswana announced that travellers to the country are no longer required to provide proof that they have received booster shots against COVID-19 to be considered fully vaccinated.

On 18 March, Botswana’s Ministry of Health and Wellness said being fully vaccinated entails one has completed the primary vaccine series.

The Ministry of Health and Wellness permanent secretary Christopher Nyanga also said fully vaccinated travellers will be allowed entry into Botswana without the need to present a negative PCR test result.
