Covid-19: Botswana eases regulations on entry and mask-wearing!

Travellers unvaccinated against Covid-19 or travellers partially vaccinated against Covid-19 intending to visit Botswana are no longer required to undergo immediate Covid-19 testing at the country's ports of entry. This means that unvaccinated or partially vaccinated travellers now only require a 72 hour negative PCR test result to be allowed entry into Botswana. However, anyone presenting themselves at a port of entry into Botswana, without the requisite documents (Covid-19 vaccindation card or 72 hour negative PCR test result), is getting tested on arrival, at own cost and if positive, isolated for five days within the district of the port of entry. The new regulation becomes effective today (02 August 2022). Also from today (02 August 2022), wearing of marks in outdoor areas in Botswana is no longer mandatory. It has also been decided that from today (02 August 2022) there will no longer be isolation of positive cases, unless if such isolation has been prescribed by a physician or medical doctor. [src.]
