Zimbabwe: Political Unrest

The political and security situation in Zimbabwe remains uncertain, following the resignation of President Mugabe on 21 November. Although demonstrations have so far been peaceful, New Zealanders should continue to exercise caution, be vigilant and maintain a high level of personal security awareness in Zimbabwe. We advise monitoring local and international media to stay informed of developments.


We advise New Zealanders in Harare, and elsewhere in Zimbabwe, to avoid all demonstrations, rallies and large public gatherings as even those intended to be peaceful have the potential to result in violence. Our level of advice has not changed. We continue to advise caution in Zimbabwe.


New Zealanders in Zimbabwe who have not yet registered their details with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade are strongly urged to do so.


New Zealanders in Zimbabwe requiring consular assistance can call the New Zealand High Commission in Pretoria, South Africa on: +27 12 435 9000.


Please pass this message to any New Zealanders you know of in Zimbabwe who may not have registered their details with us.
