Botswana now requires that anyone entering the country must be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. The new regulation took effect the 14th of February and applies to all individuals seeking to enter Botswana without exceptions.
All arrivals at a border entry must present proof of full vaccination. If they cannot provide such documentation, they must provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test result no older than 72 hours, and they must submit to vaccination at the port of entry. If they cannot present a test result, then at their own expense they must immediately take a COVID-19 PCR test and isolate within the district of the port of entry if the test result is positive.
Anyone who does not meet these requirements shall not be allowed entry into Botswana. Anyone who circumvents the requirements is subject to fines and/or imprisonment not exceeding one year.
