With one visa and one payment, visitors to Zambia and Zimbabwe can traverse the two countries without any additional charges. The Kaza Uni-visa also covers those taking day trips to Botswana, which brings the number of countries served to three. The Uni-visa is valid for 30 days as long as visitors remain within Zambia and Zimbabwe.
The Kaza Uni-visa, became permanent on December 21, 2016 in the Zambian city of Livingstone, in an agreement between the Governments of Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Botswana. The endorsement of the Kaza Uni-visa as a permanent feature, replacing the pilot phase that started on November 28, 2014, appears to be a great success.
Under the new phase, the number of eligible countries has been increased from 40 to 65.
The Kaza Uni-visa is obtainable from the following borders:
– Harry Mwaanga Nkumbula International Airport in Livingstone
– Victoria Falls land border in Livingstone
– Kazungula land border with Botswana
– Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in Lusaka
– Victoria Falls International Airport
– Victoria Falls land border in Falls Town, Zimbabwe
– Harare International Airport
Plans are underway to consider and accept electronic applications and to extend the Kaza visa to Angola, Botswana, and Namibia.
