Travel Advisory for return day visit

Guests who are planning to leave Zambia for a return day visit (e.g. to Chobe /Botswana or Victoria Falls/Zimbabwe) are advised to ensure that they have paid for, and been provided with, a double or multiple entry visa at the time of first entry. As a Zambian visa is valid for 3 years we recommend that the guest acquire a multiple entry visa in cases where more than one trip may be planned.

If acquired at the border please have cash amounts available. Credit Cards are not accepted.
