No Entry to Botswana or Zambia for tourists from Ebola infected areas

Posted on 21 August 2014

Important Travel Information

 

 

The Botswana and Zambian Ministries of Health have announced new measures to prevent the spread of Ebola.

Any tourists who have been to an Ebola infected area (Guinea, Sierra Leone, Nigeria or Liberia) in the past 30 days will be denied entry into Botswana and Zambia and returning residents from Zambia and Botswana may be subject to quarantine if they have travelled through high risk countries. Please note the list of high risk countries may increase should circumstances change.

It is therefore recommended that guests planning to visit Botswana or Zambia avoid these high risk countries at this time.

It is important to remember that these measures are to prevent the disease from coming into the respective countries, and not to contain any infection on the ground. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any queries or concerns.
