Great News! The KAZA Uni-visa is Back

(Victoria Falls)

21 December, 2016

After a long wait, the governments of Zimbabwe and Zambia have agreed to reinstate the KAZA Uni-Visa which will start being issued today.

The visa was initially launched in 2015 in an effort to ease the movement of visitors to both Zambia and Zimbabwe, especially those visiting the Victoria Falls area. It was suspended at the end of the pilot program in January 2016 for review.

As with the pilot project, the reinstated uni-visa will be valid for 30 days, but to citizens of 65 countries in Category B of both Zimbabwe and Zambia visa regimes.

The KAZA uni-visa allows holders to travel for an unlimited number of times between Zimbabwe and Zambia, for as long as they do not cross over into other countries such as Namibia, Angola, South Africa or Mozambique (to name a few). However, as with the visa before, folks who want to take a day trip into Chobe or Kasane (Botswana) can do so and still use the KAZA visa for their return entry to Zimbabwe or Zambia.

More information about the KAZA visa can be found on this page.

Kaza Univisa for travel into Botswana
by: John

I plan on buying a Kaza Univisa on arrival Victoria Falls and will be visiting Zambia and Botswana.

I had also hoped to travel into Nabibia [Impalila Island] but the Kaza Univisa states we're NOT allowed to do so with the Kaza Univisa. Would they even know? All an American needs is just an American passport - no visa required.

Does anyone know or has anyone done this? Thank you in advance.

About the KAZA UniVisa
by: Faniso

The Univisa is meant for travel between Zimbabwe and Zambia, mainly, but also allows for day trips into Botswana.

If you stay overnight in Botswana with a KAZA Univisa, it will become invalid. So my suggestion to you would be to begin your trip in Botswana (and Namibia), then you can cross over to Zimbabwe and get your Univisa then. That way, you can use it without complication.

Hope this helps.
