"In light of the tense situation, the Foreign Ministry warns for the time being against all non-essential travel to Zimbabwe," the ministry said in a statement.
Britain on Thursday issued a similar warning.
International concern has grown about violence after the disputed March 29th election, the results of which have yet to be announced.
Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai claimed victory after the first round, but the party of President Robert Mugabe, in power for the past 28 years, has said no one won and has called for a second voting round.
