MANDATORY QUARANTINE FOR TRAVELLERS
To further strengthen the COVID-19 prevention measures, all people coming from the Republic of South Africa through the Martins Drift, Ramatlabama, Pioneer Gate, Tlokweng borders and Sir Seretse Khama International Airport will be placed under mandatory quarantine for 14 days at facilities that have been identified.
This decision was taken in the view that the Republic of South Africa is affected by COVID-19 and has sustained local transmission. The objective of this mandatory quarantine is to minimize the introduction, transmission and the spread of COVID-19 in Botswana.
Only Batswana and Botswana Residents will be allowed into the country during this period. Anyone refusing mandatory quarantine will be liable to a fine as per Section 25 of the Health Act 2013.
Botswana has not as at the 23rd March 2020 recorded any positive cases of COVID-19.
