In response to concerns over the democratic process in Zimbabwe, the United States has introduced a visa restriction policy aimed at individuals deemed responsible for undermining democracy, particularly surrounding the disputed August 2023 elections. Secretary of State Antony Blinken stated that anyone found to be involved in actions such as manipulating electoral processes, disenfranchising voters, restricting political opposition, hindering civil society organizations, or engaging in corrupt acts may face ineligibility for U.S. visas.
The policy, in accordance with Section 212(a)(3)(C) of the Immigration and Nationality Act, is designed to address specific individuals involved in such activities and is not directed at the Zimbabwean people. The United States emphasizes its support for the aspirations of Zimbabweans to have free and fair elections, promoting democracy, the rule of law, and the protection of human rights. Family members of individuals implicated in these acts may also be subject to these visa restrictions.
