Information that is helpful before traveling to Botswana

Botswana has several airports, with the most significant being Sir Seretse Khama International Airport (GBE, FBSK), located in the capital city of Gaborone. The airport is the primary point of entry for international flights, with direct connections to Johannesburg, Addis Ababa, and other major African cities. Other airports in Botswana include Francistown Airport (FRW, FBFT), Maun Airport (FBMN), Kasane Airport (BBK, FBKE), Jwaneng (JWA, FBJW), Ghanzi (GNZ, FBGZ), Limpopo Valley (FBLV), Orapa (ORP, FBOR), Selibe Phikwe (PKW, FBSP), Shakawe (SWX, FBSW), Sua Pan (SXN, FBSN), Thebephatshwa – Molepolole (MIL) (FBTP) which provide access to the country's major tourism hotspots.

As with any international travel, crews must also comply with visa regulations to enter Botswana. Crew members who are citizens of visa-exempt countries can enter Botswana without a visa for up to 90 days. Crew members who are not citizens of visa-exempt countries will need to obtain a visa in advance from a Botswana embassy or consulate. In addition, all crew members will need to present a valid passport, and may also be required to provide additional documents such as an invitation letter or proof of onward travel.
