Health secretary said, “proof of being fully vaccinated is now the most important requirement for entry into Botswana.’

President Mokgeetsi Eric Keabetswe Masisi said, “one of the greatest fears is that millions of Pula’s spent on Covid-19 vaccines will go to waste. Some people seem hesitant to take the booster shots and some batches are about to expire in April.”

Botswana has nearly 3 million vaccine doses in stock and Dikoloti says the country will offer free shots to visitors at entry points.

With a population of 2.4 million, Botswana is of Africa’s most highly vaccinated countries, with the least 73 percent of adults fully inoculated against Covid-19.

The isolation regulations will be 5 days if you are vaccinated.
