Botswana begins to open up

Botswana’s borders began progressively opening this week. The country’s President has announced a phased approach that will see air travel resume at Botswana’s three key airports: Sir Seretse Khama International Airport in Gaborone, Kasane and Maun.

International air travel will then follow, resuming from 1 December at Phillip Gaonwe Matante International Airport in Francistown, as well as the opening of ground crossings at the commercial

border points of Kazungula Road, Kazungula ferry, Ngoma Ramokgwebana, Martins Drift, Ramatlabama, Tlokweng, Mamuno, Pioneer and Mohembo.

All arriving travellers will be expected to present a valid 72-hour negative Covid-19 PCR result from time of departure; be screened for Covid symptoms upon entry; undertake mandatory testing, possible isolation and quarantine if symptomatic; be in contact with local health authorities for 14 days.
