“UNI-VISA” FOR ZIMBABWE & ZAMBIA

Zimbabwe and Zambia have now launched their new KAZA (Kavango/Zambezi) tourist UNIVISA allowing entry to both countries for a single payment of US$50.

Citizens of 40 countries are eligible for the visa which is intended to save time and money and make regional travel much easier.

Where credit card point of sale facilities are not available at port of entry it is recommended that visitors have US$50 cash available for payment

The KAZA UNIVISA is valid for 30 days as long as you remain in Zimbabwe and Zambia. Visitors can cross into Zimbabwe/Zambia as frequently as they like within the 30 day period. If the UNIVISA is obtained at Victoria Falls, you cross over to Zimbabwe at Kariba or Chirundu or vice versa and the visa will be valid

It also covers those who visit Botswana for day trips through the Kazangula Borders. However, it is not currently valid if staying in Botswana overnight. In such cases, a new Visa will need to be purchased.

The UNIVISA cannot be extended, but you can buy a new UNIVISA (up to 3 per year). The plan is to “pilot” the new KAZA Uni-visa for six months and then extend it to the other three KAZA countries – Angola, Botswana and Namibia.

The new UNIVISA is available at Harare, Victoria Falls, Lusaka and Livingstone airports, the Victoria Falls road border (Zimbabwe/Zambia) and the Kazungula road border (Zimbabwe/Zambia/Botswana)

 

If you are not staying for longer than six months, you can enter Zimbabwe with a minimum of formalities.
You will need a valid passport, a return ticket to your country (or enough money to buy one) and sufficient funds to cover your stay in Zimbabwe. Your passport is valuable. Don’t hand your passport over to unauthorized persons or pack it in your luggage. If your passport is lost or stolen report it immediately to the Local police, and to the nearest relevant embassy or consulate

Photocopy your passport, air tickets, travelers cheque's, credit cards and visas, insurance documents etc.

Remember to keep originals and copies separate

The general criteria is for you to have acceptable travel documents, possess sufficient funds to support yourself whilst in Zimbabwe, and have the means of returning to your home country

Passport valid for at least 6 months from date of entry required by all
