June 2023: Zimbabwe’s COVID-19 travel restrictions have officially been lifted. This is following the World Health Organisation (WHO) statement that COVID-19 no longer constitutes a “Public Health Emergency of International Concern”. Travellers are no longer required to produce COVID-19 vaccination certificates or tests at point of entry.
All visitors to Zimbabwe are required to carry a passport that is valid for six months beyond the intended length of stay. Passports should have at least 3 blank pages for entry and departure stamps.
The most up to date information regarding Zimbabwe visa requirements can be found on the official Government of Zimbabwe eVisa website. Please review the visa regimes on their website to confirm which category applies. Category A: Visitors from the countries listed are not required to have a visa to travel to Zimbabwe. Category B: Visitors from the countries listed are not required to apply for a visa before travelling, but may pay for and obtain your visa when you enter Zimbabwe. Category C: Visitors from the countries listed are required to pay for and obtain your visa before travel to Zimbabwe.
For those travellers who can apply for a visa on arrival, to streamline the visa process we highly recommend carrying USD cash (in appropriate denominations) for visa payments.
