The Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA TFCA) is a conservation area, spanning five southern African countries; Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe, centred around the Caprivi-Chobe-Victoria Falls area. In pursuance of regional economic development through tourism, the Republics of Zambia and Zimbabwe, with support of the World Bank in partnership with the KAZA TFCA Secretariat, embarked on the development of the KAZA UNIVISA Pilot Project with the aim of facilitating easy movement of tourists between the two pilot countries.
The KAZA UNIVISA Pilot Project was launched on 28th November 2014 with an initial period to run for six months and later extended for a further six months. On 21st December 2016, Zambia and Zimbabwe launched the roll out phase of the KAZA UNIVISA in Livingstone, Zambia, where the Ministers of Home Affairs from both Zambia and Zimbabwe signed a Memorandum of Understanding symbolizing the commencement of the permanent issuance of the KAZA UNIVISA. It is the desire of both Zambia and Zimbabwe that the roll out phase shall lead to the ultimate incorporation of the other three partner countries into this initiative.
The KAZA UNIVISA costs USD 50 and allows tourists to obtain one visa to visit both countries multiple times. The visa is valid up to 30 days as long as the holder remains within Zambia and Zimbabwe. It also covers those who visit Botswana for day-trips through Kazungula Borders.
This visa is currently only available at the following ports of entry in Zambia and Zimbabwe:
|Kenneth Kaunda International Airport||Harare International Airport|
|Harry Mwanga Nkumbula International Airport||Victoria Falls International Airport|
|Victoria Falls Border||Victoria Falls Border|
|Kazungula Border||Kazungula Border|
