Other African countries in the list include Namibia Morocco, Ethiopia, Seychelles, Eritrea, Gambia, Mauritius, Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Djibouti, Lesotho and Angola.
Other countries included on the list are Italy, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Singapore, United States (except California, Florida and Texas) and Thailand among others.
All passengers will be required to produce a PCR based COVID-19 certificate showing proof of having done a test within 96 hours before travel.
