Zimbabwe Visa Requirements

Category A and B passport holders staying for short term holiday purposes can enter Zimbabwe with a minimum of formalities.

A Visa to enter Zimbabwe is required by several nationalities, please read the full details listed below.

Visa Categories

Zimbabwe has 3 visa categories:

Category A: Countries whose nationals do NOT require a Visa. No action required, you will be granted easy entry at any border post.

Category B: Countries whose nationals are granted a Zimbabwe visa at the port of entry on payment of requisite visa fees. These visas are easiest obtained on your arrival at the Airport or border post. If you get them done via an agency in your home country they will often cost you quite a bit more and be a lot more hassle.

If you are intending to visit Zambia as well then the Kaza / UniVisa is your most economical choice. Read More


Category C: Countries whose nationals are required to apply for and obtain a Zimbabwe visa prior to travelling. You can apply through a Zimbabwe High Commission in your home or neighbouring country or an easier way is to apply online - click on this link Zimbabwe e-visa for details

For important updates, be sure to check our NEWSFLASH page.

Find out the Category of your country in the tables below.

Passport Requirements

All Categories need:-

• Passport valid for a least 6 months from your date of entry.
• Return ticket to your country (or enough money to buy one)
• Sufficient funds to cover your stay in Zimbabwe
• Enough blank pages in your passport to fit the required entry visa.

Visa Types

Single Entry visa allows for entry into Zimbabwe one time. Once you exit Zimbabwe, the visa cannot be used again.

Double Entry visa allows for up to two entries into Zimbabwe. Valid up to 90 days from the date of issue. Once you have used it for the two entries and two exits, the visa cannot be used again.

Multiple Entry visas - CANNOT be obtained at the port of entry into Zimbabwe. You may enter Zimbabwe on a single entry visa and then obtain a Multiple Entry Visa from the town office - but this may take up to 7 working days to be issued and in many cases is declined - if you need to enter 3 or 4 times rather buy a single entry and then a double entry visa or two doubles, which is a perfectly accepted by immigration.

Children - As of June 2012 - Zimbabwe will now be charging FULL VISA fees for any individual who is required to have a VISA despite their age. This includes infants and children who were previously being exempted from this. This has been imposed with immediate effect.

Zimbabwe Visa Fees

Visitors coming from Category B countries (listed below) will need to pay a fee for their visa when they arrive at the port of entry, whether it is at the land border or at the airport. Category C nationals who applied for a visa online will also need to pay for their visa on arrival. We strongly advise these visitors to have cash for their visas as credit card machines have become more and more unreliable when it comes to payments for visas.

Here is the fee structure for Zimbabwe visas:

ZIMBABWE VISA FEES

Single Entry US$ 30
Double Entry US$ 45
Multiple Entry - See notes above US$ 55

Visa Fees

CATEGORY C: ZIMBABWE VISA FEES
Single Entry US$30 to US$100

Category C nationals can apply for a single or double entry Zimbabwe visa

British Passports Holders

You need a Zimbabwe visa to visit Zimbabwe. This can be obtained from the Zimbabwe Embassy in London or on arrival in Zimbabwe.  To be honest it is easier and in most cases cheaper just to get one at the port of entry.

The current charge for a single entry Zimbabwe visa issued on arrival is US$ 55 and US$ 70 for a Double Entry Zimbabwe visa. The KazaVisa is the best option when it is available. Credit cards (mastercard and visa) are accepted but always have a cash reserve just incase the card machines are not working.

Visitors are currently being given entry permission for anything up to 90 days but you are strongly advised to check that the number of days given at the port of entry covers your intended period of stay, although you can apply to have this period renewed and extended if required.

USA Passport Holders

You need a Zimbabwe visa to visit Zimbabwe, this can be obtained from the Zimbabwe Embassy in the United States or on arrival in Zimbabwe.  To be honest it is easier and in most cases cheaper just to get one at the port of entry.

The current charge for a single entry Zimbabwe visa issued on arrival is US$ 30 and US$ 45 for a Double Entry Zimbabwe visa, although this could change at any stage. Please read information about the KazaVisa as this might be a better option for you (when it is available) dependant on your movements. Credit cards (mastercard and visa) are accepted but always have a cash reserve just incase the card machines are not working.
