50 USD the visa for visiting Zambia and Zimbabwe togheter
The KAZA UniVisa Project was launched in November 2014 for an initial six-month trial period, which was later extended for a further six months. After the success of the UniVisa during this period, Zambia and Zimbabwe began the official roll-out of the KAZA UniVisa in December 2016, starting with a single point of entry – Livingstone, Zambia.
Finally – as of 2017, the KAZA UniVisa is available to 65 nations, starting with the Zambian and Zimbabwean governments printing 50 000 unified visas for foreign visitors to their countries.
The Kaza Uni-Visa is valid for 30 days and allows you to cross between both countries as many times as you wish. The standard tourist visas available allow visitors to stay for up to 90 days, BUT only in the designated country – therefore, making you purchase a visa for each country.
The Uni-Visa even allows for day-trips to Botswana to visit attractions like the Chobe National Park – provided you return to Zambia or Zimbabwe the same day. If it’s accommodation in Botswana that you’re looking for – you will need to obtain another visa.
Despite this – we are seeing an increased numbers of visitors every year, and the issuance of the KAZA visas will no doubt contribute to increased tourist inflows and subsequently revenue, due to a reduced cost of visiting our bucket-list-worthy country.
The KAZA visa will be available through the Immigration Department to citizens from 65 different countries (which includes those eligible to obtain visas on arrival in either country).
The usual tourist visas are still active and can be obtained at any of the entry points into either country. Currently, Zambia charges US$50 for a single entry and Zimbabwe US$35 (depending on the traveller’s nationality), which means that the Kaza UniVisa is not only cheaper if you want to visit both countries, but also allows you to avoid unnecessary visa queues.
