Travelling to Zambia & Not Sure About Visa's...?

Mundia Mubita,

Travelling to Zambia has never been this easy as most foreign nationals do not require a visa or can easily get one from a foreign mission or upon arrival at the airport at a minimal fee.

It is in this regard that Visitors to Zambia have increased over the past years which has in turn contributed largely to the growth of Zambias tourism industry.

In order to obtain a Zambian Visa, you are advised to present a passport with a minimuim of 6months before it expires.

On 28the November Zambia and Zimbabwe introduced a Kaza Visa which can be obtained on arrival and is valid for both countries which lasts for 30 days.

While this particular Visa is still in the first stage, its is expected that in the second stage Namibia, Angola and Botswana are expected to join in the pact and with its success, all SADC countries are expected to be part of the Universal Visa campaign.

Fees for Visa in Zambia include; Single Entry: $50, Double Entry: $80, Day Tripper: $20
