Update : April 16th, 2020

National lockdown implemented

What is the change?

The Zimbabwe government recently implemented a nationwide lockdown to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Key points

  • Effective March 30, Zimbabwe is on a 21-day lockdown, and travel into the country is not permitted except for essential activities like the movement of goods, and power and water operations.
  • The Immigration Department is covered by the lockdown, so it may not be possible to submit work permit applications during this period.
  • There are 14-day quarantine facilities located at Harare and Bulawayo.

The new lockdown will temporarily very much impact the movement of people into Zimbabwe and work permit applications. Employers should account for affected travelers and rearrange travel schedules accordingly. Significant delays may occur for consular and in-country processing.
