For the majority of visitors to Southern Africa, visas are issued on the spot at port of entry with no additional documentation needed. There are of course exceptions, anomalies and random changes so, regardless of what country you are from, be sure to confirm your visa requirements for every country you plan to visit well in advance of your travels.
Most visas are issued to cover the duration of your trip up to a maximum of 90 days. Nationals from some countries - depending on current foreign relations it would seem - are charged fairly eye-watering sums for the privilege of entry while others may have to jump through several red-taped hoops in addition.
Thus, in all cases and for every member of your group, please consult your nearest embassy or consulate as the most reliable source of current regulations. Bear in mind you may need to produce supporting documentation that takes a long time to source and therefore we recommend you ascertain your visa requirements before you even book your trip.
Please note: while we can furnish you with supporting documents for your visa application, we cannot provide or substantiate visa advice or services. This is due to the large administrative and legal burden of staying current with visa requirements for nationals from every country for each of the countries in the sub-continent.
You can look up your requirements using an online visa service like iVisa.com or contact your nearest Embassy or Consulate:
Zambia and the Zambian side of Victoria Falls
Zimbabwe and the Zimbabwean side of Victoria Falls
Important: airlines may refuse passage if you don't have the correct visa in your passport and we cannot be held liable for damages resulting from incomplete travel documents. For more information please see our Terms and Conditions.
