Transit Visa + single entry OR double entry

by Greta

Good afternoon,

Will be travelling with 2 friends next month.
Our flight arrives at Victoria Falls International Airport, a Zimbabwe friend will pick us up and bring us immediately to Kasane / Botswana. Later, in June, we cross the border again to Zimbabwe for 2 nights.
What do you recommend us: a transit visa (don't know if this one is available actually) + a single entry visa OR a double entry-visa?
Thanks a lot in advance!

Which Zimbabwe to get
by: Tony

Hi Greta

You don't mention your nationality which makes all the difference but I am presuming it is Belgium.
In which case you would be best to buy a double entry visa at $45 each.
Zimbabwe does not have a transit visa. So your first arrival even though you go straight back out the country is still classed as an entry.

Now if you are at all planning to leave Zimbabwe again during your 2 night stay, let's say to go and see the Falls from the Zambian side. Then you need to do things differently.

You buy a single entry on you arrival $30 and then when you return after Botswana you buy a Kaza Visa $50. This Kaza visa covers you for multiple entries between Zimbabwe and Zambia. If you don't do this then you will end up paying for a day visa in to Zambia and another single entry visa into Zimbabwe.
The Kaza Visa counts for day entry into Botswana but is null and void if you spend a night in Botswana, hence you don't buy this in the first place.

Hope that helps
