Quarantine Guidelines

Returning Residents

Quarantine is Mandatory

In accordance with the Ministry of Health guidelines all travellers arriving in Zimbabwe from outside the country will be required to undergo mandatory quarantine for a total of 21 days of which 8 must be served in a mandated government or approved private quarantine centre.

International travel has been a major source of Covid-19 spread. Quarantine is one measure our government is taking to
protect you and the citizens of Zimbabwe.

Testing is Mandatory

Travellers are required to have a rapid test at day one, a PCR test on day 8 and an additional test on day 21.

The government laboratories do provide this service to those in government centres. At ZINCAT, our doctors will facilitate your expedited
testing through a private lab that will be an additional and separate charge to your bill.

Our team will facilitate a final quarantine discharge letter that will be endorsed by MOH attesting to your satisfactory completion of
quarantine requirements.


Quarantine means you are isolated from your friends,
colleagues and family for your protection and the health and
safety of our nation.
