Botswana started a phased reopening of international borders from 9 November 2020, after which air travel resumed at Sir Seretse Khama International Airport in Gaborone, as well as Maun and Kasane International Airports.

Airlines currently flying into Botswana include:
– Private charter flights
– SA Airlink, Air Botswana
– Quatar Airways
– Ethiopian Airlines

Most road borders are open into Botswana and Martins drift has been the most popular with our clients, this border has been relatively quiet and easy to cross.

Health screening and Covid-19 protocols upon arrival in and departure from Botswana

Arrivals are expected to present a valid Covid-19 test conducted within 72 hours of departure for Botswana. If you are arriving at Maun Airport, a Rapid Antigen Test (free of charge) is also required upon arrival, of which results will be available within 15 minutes.
