The recently launched UNIVSA (or KAZA visa) now makes traveling between Zambia and Zimbabwe so much easier… and cheaper too!

In a nutshell, nationalities who originally had to apply for and pay for a separate visa for Zambia and Zimbabwe now only need one visa for both countries at a cost of US$ 50.

This is good news for travelers and tour operators alike! It saves time and money making it a pleasure to explore both countries on the same trip.

In terms of cost, this is a saving of about $80-$130 per person for visitors who are planning on travelling within the Golden Triangle of Victoria Falls, Livingstone and Chobe.

And to save time,  separate dedicated counters have been assigned to deal with KAZA UNIVISA applications. And reports indicate that things are running efficiently and that time is saved not having to wait for the normally slow handwritten visa and receipting process.

Plus word on the ground is that in the future this UNIVISA will also include Namibia, Angola and Botswana.
