National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
We currently advise that all New Zealanders do not travel overseas at this time due to the outbreak of COVID-19, associated health risks and widespread travel restrictions. The global situation remains complex and rapidly changing. International travel can be complicated with fewer international flights available and disruptions to transit routes and hubs. Any destination could experience a sudden increase in cases of COVID-19 and a heightened risk to travellers of contracting the virus. Strict health measures and movement restrictions could be imposed suddenly. Should you decide to travel despite our advice, be prepared to remain overseas longer than you intended. You should also be aware that your travel insurance may not cover travel disruption or medical expenses. Managed Isolation and Quarantine in New Zealand All travellers to New Zealand must undertake 14 days of government-provided managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ). Detailed information about MIQ requirements in New Zealand can be found at www.miq.govt.nz. Pre-departure testing requirements for travellers to New Zealand All travellers to New Zealand (excluding those from Antarctica, Australia and most Pacific Islands) must show evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result before departure. Detailed information about pre-departure testing requirements can be found on the Unite Against Covid-19 website here. We recognise that some New Zealanders do continue to live and travel overseas.

National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Vi fraråder alle rejser til hele Tanzania for at minimere risikoen for smittespredning med nye COVID-19 varianter. Vi fraråder dermed også erhvervsrejser, men med visse undtagelser. Information om lokale restriktioner, karantæne- og testkrav kan findes hos den danske ambassade i Dar es Salaam.  Du kan læse mere om, hvordan du skal forholde dig, når du kommer hjem fra en udenlandsrejse på coronasmitte.dk. Rejseklar og Danskerlisten Du bør downloade vores app Rejseklar og tilmelde dig Danskerlisten, så modtager du information direkte fra os, hvis der sker større ændringer i indrejserestriktionerne, eller hvis rejsevejledningen skifter farve. Andre sikkerhedsrisici De fleste danskere som besøger de mest populære turistområder har ingen problemer under deres besøg i Tanzania. Vær dog til enhver tid opmærksom på din personlige sikkerhed, når du rejser i Tanzania, især pga. risikoen for kriminalitet, trafikuheld og uroligheder i forbindelse med demonstrationer. I området langs grænserne til Burundi og Rwanda er der øget risiko for overfald.  Vi fraråder alle ikke-nødvendige rejser til Mtwara-regionen, som er grænseområdet mellem Tanzania og Mozambique, idet der er en betydelig risiko for voldelige sammenstød eller terrorhandlinger. Sikkerhedsrisikoen er så høj, at du bør have helt særlige grunde til at rejse dertil.

Danger level: 5

Do not travel..

Note of the displayed travel advisories
These travel advisories are automatically gathered. We use the RSS Feeds of the corresponding authorities of the single countries. In some cases, we analyse the website itself. Since the information originates from different countries and different countries have different understanding of danger and danger levels. Thus, the information displayed is an automized and normalized representation with no right to completeness and correctness. If a country is not shown, it doesn't necessarily mean it's safe. The information shown is a first indicator. Additional remark: the websites address does not endorse the situation of a 'Reisewarnung' (with its name). Often, it's just formal notifications by other countries. These can be the reason a country reaches scores of aorund 2.0 and still be a generally safe country to visit. Lower risk grades are usually no sign of a immanent threat!
