National Team

Chivaviro is eligible to play for either Zimbabwe or South Africa as he was born to a Zimbabwean father and a South African mother.

In June 2023, Chivaviro revealed that there was a talk about him playing for the Zimbabwe national team in 2018.[5]

He said he would still consider the call-up if Zimbabwe approached him again.

However, that same month, Chivaviro received a call-up for the preliminary Bafana Bafana squad for the 2023 COSAFA Cup from 5 to 16 July 2023.[6]
