We are very excited to advise that the new Kaza ‘Univisa’, launched on 28th November 2014, has been operating smoothly and efficiently in the two pilot countries Zambia and Zimbabwe, which share a world icon in Victoria Falls.
The univisa is available to citizens of 30 countries for $50 USD and allows unlimited movement for 30 days between Zimbabwe and Zambia, including return day trips into Botswana.
This user friendly approach makes it much more affordable and easier to visit the major attractions in proximity of each other – Victoria Falls Zimbabwe and Zambian side as well as into Botswana’s Chobe National Park on a day return trip – without paying for expensive multi entry visas for each country.
Very user friendly, the visa can be obtained on arrival at selected ports of entry (including Livingstone Airport, Victoria Falls Airport, Kazungula Botswana borders into Zimbabwe and Zambia, Harare and Lusaka amongst others).
Assuming this pilot initiative is successful, the univisa will be extended to include Angola, Botswana and Namibia. Further down the track, Mozambique, South Africa and Swaziland could be included, before Tanzania, Seychelles, Mauritius, Malawi, Madagascar, Lesotho and the Democratic Republic of Congo come on board. A common visa will make the region a more competitive tourist destination, with added convenience and reduced costs. This has the potential to broaden and enrich the tourism experience while providing important economic benefits to the region’s diverse host countries and communities.
