UK Govt Zimbabwe Travel Advice {Press Release}

UK Govt Zimbabwe Travel Advice {Press Release}

If you’re planning to travel to Zimbabwe, find out what you need to know about coronavirus there in the Coronavirus section.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever to get travel insurance and check your cover. See the FCDO’s guidance on foreign travel insurance.

For information about COVID-19 vaccines, see the Coronavirus page.

You should avoid any political gatherings or demonstrations. These can be unpredictable, can turn violent without notice and the response from the security forces may be disproportionate. You should exercise a high degree of caution and monitor local media and this travel advice for updates.

Taking photographs of police and armed forces personnel and of demonstrations and protests is not permitted. You should avoid political activity or activities which could be considered political, including political discussions in public places. Ensure you carry identification, so that you can produce it if required to do so by the security forces. See Political situation

Zimbabwe’s economic situation remains unpredictable. Whilst the primary legal tender in Zimbabwe is the “Zimbabwe Dollar”, it is currently possible for tourists to transact using the US Dollar at the official exchange rate. This may change without notice.

There is a shortage of physical cash so it is not always possible to make cash withdrawals using an international bank card. You should check with your tour operator or hotel what payment methods will be accepted. See Money

Zimbabwe is currently experiencing some electricity shortages resulting in extended periods without power. During blackouts, you should exercise a high degree of caution when driving as traffic lights may not be operational.

Water rationing is being experienced in certain parts of the country. Contact your tour operator or hotel for the latest updates.

Availability of fuel can be sporadic. You are advised to check in advance if you can make payment with an international payment card. See Road travel

There is a moderate level of crime in Zimbabwe. Remain vigilant, especially after dark, and make sure accommodation and vehicles are secure. See Safety and security

Always carry identity documentation or a copy of your passport. See Local laws and customs

Holiday and business visas are available at the port of entry. Don’t violate the conditions of your visa. See Visas

Dual British-Zimbabwean nationals who travel to Zimbabwe must have a valid travel document to re-enter the United Kingdom.

It’s not possible to re-enter the UK using a Zimbabwean passport or emergency travel document without a visa or entry clearance endorsed. See Dual nationals

Air Zimbabwe has been refused permission to operate flights to the EU because the airline has been unable to demonstrate that it complies with international air safety standards.

British government employees travelling to and within Zimbabwe have been advised to use carriers that aren’t subject to the EU operating ban. See Air travel

Although there’s no recent history of terrorism in Zimbabwe, attacks can’t be ruled out. See Terrorism

If you’re abroad and you need emergency help from the UK government, contact the nearest British embassy, consulate or high commission.

To all those castigating the UK Govt Travel Advice please note the following:-

* The travel advice is for UK citizens and residents travelling to and around Zimbabwe
* Look at each piece of advice objectively, without emotional blinkers and ask yourself whether it is factual and sound

Frankly speaking (and I am a Zimbo living in Zimbabwe), every one of these points is valid and correct

It simply shows how and why this country is a shambles

Let's not be emotional.

I expect a lot of name-calling and diatribe coming at me from some jingoistic people
