Foreign and Commonwealth Office amends Zimbabwe travel advice

Written by editor

LONDON (August 27, 2008) – The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has changed its travel advice for Zimbabwe.

LONDON (August 27, 2008) – The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has changed its travel advice for Zimbabwe. Due to the continued decrease in violence in the country they no longer advise against all but essential travel to Zimbabwe. However, they do advise against all travel to high density, low income areas at any time and all but essential travel to rural Mashonaland, rural Mancialand and farming areas. The relevant summary point now reads:

“We strongly advise against all travel to high density, low-income suburban
areas at any time; and all but essential travel to rural Mashonaland, rural
Manicaland and farming areas. There have been a number of serious incidents
in rural areas, and it is dangerous for farmers or agricultural workers to
visit former properties or other agricultural areas. You should also avoid
areas where war veterans are active. The situation remains unpredictable
and incidents of violence across the country continue: it could deteriorate
further, without warning.”
