Foreign travel advice



Dual British-Zimbabwean nationals who wish to travel to Zimbabwe and return to the United Kingdom must have a valid travel document to re-enter the United Kingdom. It’s not possible to re-enter the UK using a Zimbabwean passport or emergency travel document without a visa or entry clearance endorsed. See Dual nationals.

Holiday and business visas are available at the port of entry. Don’t violate the terms of your visa. See Visas.

Although the economic outlook in Zimbabwe improved under the 2009 to 2013 Government of National Unity, the economic situation is increasingly fragile with smaller banks facing difficulty. See Political situation.

If you’re living in Zimbabwe, keep your security arrangements under close review, make sure your travel documents are up to date and readily available. Have a contingency plan in place in case you need to leave at short notice.

There is a low threat from terrorism. See Terrorism.

Take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before you travel.
