02/12/2021
Welcome to GOV.UK

IMPORTANT UPDATE FROM THE BRITISH EMBASSY FOR TRAVELLERS TO THE UK FROM ZIMBABWE FOLLOWING THE INTRODUCTION OF TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS

The UKHSA designated variant B.1.1.529/Omicron as a variant under investigation (VuI) on Thursday 25 November. In response to the developing situation, the government has added 10 countries to the Red List - South Africa, Botswana, Lesostho, Eswatini, Zimbabwe, Namibia, Malawi, Mozambique, Zambia, and Angola.

Non-British residents who have been in these countries in the previous 10 days will be refused entry into England. From Sunday only British and Irish citizens, or those with residence rights (including long-term visa holders), are allowed to enter England. They must isolate in a government-approved facility for 10 days. During their stay, they will be required to take a coronavirus test on day 2 and day 8.

From 4 am Tuesday, all international arrivals must take a PCR test on day 2 and self- isolate until they receive a negative result.

Please note that the Embassy has been advised that airlines are checking that bookings have been made for hotel quarantine before passengers are allowed to board in Harare. Link for more information on managed quarantine here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/booking-and-staying-in-a-quarantine-hotel-when-you-arrive-in-england. The Managed Quarantine Service web page has guidance on the support available if you cannot pay or if you face financial hardship

We understand that British Airways and Virgin Atlantic are resuming flights from South Africa after a temporary halt this weekend. If you are a British or Irish citizen or a Zimbabwean with residence rights in the UK and you have booked to travel to the UK via either of these airlines, please note that you will still need to book and undertake 10 days quarantine in a government approved hotel.

Did you submit a UK visa application before the announcement of the latest travel restrictions? More information here: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-advice-for-uk-visa-applicants-and-temporary-uk-residents

These are temporary and precautionary measures to slow the spread of Omicron, which is an extremely concerning variant of COVID-19. We thank you for your understanding and help in trying to slow down its spread. You are saving lives.

Please continue to follow gov.uk updates, our FB page and UK Travel Advice for updates.

If you’re in Zimbabwe and you need advice which is not covered by reading our travel advice then you can call us on +263(242)338808/9 or +263(242)858552500 or contact us online. If you need urgent help (for example, you’ve been attacked, arrested or someone has died),or calling from the UK on behalf of someone in Zimbabwe, call +441908516666.

Red list of countries and territories

Zimbabwe is on the UK Government travel red list due to the potential spread of the Omicron COVID-19 variant in the region.

Key information points for British Nationals or those looking to travel:
- Entry to England is limited to those with British or Irish nationality, or those with residency right in the UK. Separate, but similar, restrictions are in place for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
- UK Visas & Immigration (UKVI) are pausing decision making on visa applications from red listed countries while restrictions are in place. Those who already hold a valid visit visa and intend to travel to England as a visitor from a red list country will generally be refused entry.
- Those allowed to enter the UK from a red listed country, or who have been in one in the preceding 10 days, must hold a negative PCR test taken three days before departure, undergo 10 days managed quarantine in a designated hotel and take PCR tests on days 2 and 8. The hotel and testing package must have been booked pre-departure.

For full details and to keep up to date, please check gov.uk at https://www.gov.uk/guidance/red-list-of-countries-and-territories including links to separate guidance for entry to the Devolved Administrations.

Check the COVID-19 testing and quarantine rules for countries and territories on the red list for international travel to England.

IMPORTANT UPDATE FOR TRAVELLERS FROM ZIMBABWE:

From Monday 22 November at 4am GMT, proof of vaccination from Zimbabwe will be recognised in the UK. This means that travellers with a Zimbabwean vaccination certificate will no longer need to self-isolate on arrival in the UK. This is a great boost for business and holiday travel. Please note that if you arrive in England before this date, you must follow the rules for people who do not qualify as fully vaccinated for travel to the UK

Travel to England from another country during coronavirus (COVID-19)

✈️✈️✈️✈️🇬🇧🇬🇧🇬🇧

UK Visas and Immigration will process applications as soon as possible. Due to extremely high demand, standard UK visitor visas are taking significantly longer than usual to be processed. You should bear this in mind when making any bookings. We urge customers and partners to not make any payments linked to travel until they have received their visa.

· Before applying for your visa, check the latest information on travel to England from another country during coronavirus (COVID-19). Pay close attention to any local travel guidance in your country of residence.

· We are unable to give individual updates on applications. You will be contacted by the Visa Application Centre (VAC) when your passport is ready for collection. Do not attend the VAC until you have been invited to do so.

Check what COVID-19 tests you need to take and the quarantine rules for travel to England.

43 children at Chisecha Primary in Mount Darwin had to cross a minefield daily to get to school. Furthermore, many Mozambicans cross the border daily to access schools and services.

Before The HALO Trust ‘s commendable work of clearing the landmines in Mt Darwin last year, 9 children were injured. These children’s parents weren’t even born when these mines were laid.

Through the UK’s GMAP2 programme mine risk education has been delivered to over 34,000 people in Zimbabwe.

The Happy Reader books aim to inform and educate children about the dangers of walking through minefields and going near or picking up mines – 6000 of these books were distributed to schools in Mount Darwin.
