Mandatory requirements & documentation to travel cross-border
It is of the utmost importance when crossing into Zimbabwe that you have a valid passport – valid for at least 6 months after your date of return. If you do not have a passport, apply for it well in advance.
Temporary passports can be issued on short notice but they are not accepted by all foreign countries. Keep certified copies of your passport with you for identification purposes and in case you misplace your passport. Do not give your passport over to anyone except immigration officials or if requested to do so for reasons of identification.
One thing is most certain though: travel with Greyhound and you’ll get there safely and economically!
