The New UniVisa For Zimbabwe/Zambia

A Visa to enter Zimbabwe is required by several nationalities, please read the full details listed below.

There are 3 categories:

  • Category A: Countries whose nationals do NOT require a Visa. No action required, you will be granted easy entry at any border post.
  • Category B: Countries whose nationals are granted a Zimbabwe visa at port of entry on payment of requisite visa fees. These visas are easiest obtained on your arrival at the Airport or border post. If you get them done via an agency in your home country they will often cost you quite a bit more and be a lot more hassle. UniVisa Available please read below.
  • Category C: Countries whose nationals are required to apply for and obtain a Zimbabwe visa prior to travelling. Unfortunately this is a bit of a pain, but you have to apply through an agency or the Zimbabwe High Commission in your home country.

The New UniVisa For Zimbabwe/Zambia

Countries whose nationals do NOT require a Zimbabwe Visa.

The UNIVISA - standard fee of US$50 – where credit card point of sale facilities are not available at port of entry it is recommended that clients have US$50 available for payment.

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

It also covers those who visit Botswana for day trips through the Kazangula Borders – it will not be valid if staying in Botswana overnight, in this case you would need to purchase a new Visa.

The UNIVISA cannot be extended however you can buy a new UNIVISA (up to 3 per year). You do NOT have to by a UniVisa you can purchase normal single and double entry visas if they suit you better - see  Zimbabwe visa page

Example 1: US passport holder only coming to Zimbabwe, not going across to Zambia. Better to buy a single entry visa @ $30

Example 2: US passport holder staying in Zimbabwe but going to Zambia for a day activity. Normal visa price $45 double entry visa to Zimbabwe + $20 Zambia day tripper visa = $65. Therefore cheaper to buy UniVisa at $50 covers all entries.
