Visitors must apply through an agency, or the Zimbabwe High Commission in your home country, or online (www www.evisa.gov.zw)
The Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier (KAZA) UniVisa was available for most Category B countries meaning visitors could travel as frequently as they like between Angola, Botswana, Zambia, Namibia and Zimbabwe for a standard one-off fee of $50 has been suspended since November 2015 when the stickers ran out. It was a pilot project run by Zimbabwe and Zambia, to ease tourist travel back and forth between the two countries, as well as for day trips into Botswana. It was mainly used by tourists who wanted to enjoy the Victoria Falls area in both Zimbabwe and Zambia without the hassle and expense of purchasing multiple visas on either side. Visitors to Zimbabwe and Zambia can still get the standard visas such as the single and double entry visas, as well as the day-tripper visas in Zambia.
However we are told the stickers have been reprinted and that the KAZA UniVisa will be issued from 1st May 2016.
