Botswana Considers KAZA Visa
8 March 2019
In a Bi-National Commission meeting held in Harare between Zimbabwe and Botswana delegates, representatives of Botswana said that they are considering joining with Zambia and Zimbabwe in the KAZA Uni-Visa program which was launched in November 2014.
Botswana, in the past has been reluctant to be part of the program which has the potential to ease travel through the region, by allowing visitors to purchase just one visa to travel between Zimbabwe, Zambia, and now possibly Botswana.
Presently, visitors to Zimbabwe and/or Zambia who are on a uni-visa may enter Botswana for a day trip and return without having to buy another visa. However, staying overnight in Botswana nullifies the uni-visa.
If Botswana do join in the program, it means that visitors who qualify for the uni-visa can spend several days in Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia, making the most of their holiday, with just the one visa. The US$ 50 KAZA uni-visa is valid for 30 days, after which you may purchase another - up to 3 per year.
