Zimbabwe & Zambia combined visa
Wednesday 12 November 2014
Zimbabwe has announced it's introducing a tourist visa that will also allow visitors into Zambia as President Robert Mugabe's government tries to boost tourism.
The Zimbabwe-Zambia uni-visa has cost around R9 million to set up and it's funded by the World Bank.
Zimbabwe's tourism authorities are hoping this visa, which will be introduced on 28 November, will significantly boost tourist arrivals.
The country’s state run Sunday News says the visa, called the Kaza uni-visa, will cost $50 and it will be bought at the tourist's point of entry.
The visa will last for 30 days and it will mean visitors who previously had to buy two separate visas for Zimbabwe and Zambia can now tour with just the one.
This is still a pilot project but it's understood Namibia, Angola and Botswana will join the scheme after the initial six months.
