“KAZA UNI-VISA” FOR ZIMBABWE & ZAMBIA at border posts near Kaza Park

KAZA univisa stickers will be available next week at all ports of entry in Zambia and Zimbabwe. ( ease of passage between the three countries ( Zambia, Zimbabwe & day visits into Botswana )KAZA Country Liaison Officer Zimbabwe, Godfrey Mtare, told Tourism Update that the stickers had already been printed and were now with immigration departments.“They are to be dispatched urgently to all ports of entry within the next few days,” said Mtare.Previously, the stickers were printed outside the countries but would now be done locally (for both Zambia and Zimbabwe), making it easier and quicker to respond to supply shortages, he said.

Mtare also confirmed that Zambia and Zimbabwe were working on integrating the KAZA univisa into their local systems. “We are expecting the process to be completed soon, since much of the work has already commenced. I would put it by year-end, or early 2018 if behind schedule.”

Great news as this modality reflects an ease of passage between the three countries ( Zambia, Zimbabwe & day visits into Botswana ) inbound international visitors see as positive motivation to come visit. This region really is offering exceptional experiences all year round now.

Significant investment/refurbs from those property owners/concession lessees is very evident and along with a most superbly compiled and fact full twelve page document named Africa’s Living Soul Survey issued by Africa Albida Tourism ( AAT ), reflects a Team on the ground who are driving a very, very attractive destination.

Zimbabwe has relaxed visa requirements for Chinese nationals allowing them to get visas on arrival.

Practical tips for Zimbabwe Visas

Zimbabwe has started an online visa system www.evisa.gov.zw. Applying online will get visitors a letter that they must present on arrival, which is when the visa is actually issued.

Anyone driving up from South Africa can save themselves a lot of hassle at the border by contacting the Zimbabwe Tourism Authority ahead of time. They can arrange to have an officer to wait at the border post and walk visitors through the immigration and customs process. This can save hours and endless headaches. And it’s a free service (Lindarose Ntuli at +263 772 409373 )

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
