Uni-visa helps in increasing tourists to Victoria Falls

Published on : Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Victoria FallsTourist arrivals in Zimbabwe’s top holiday destination have increased steadily after the launch of the re-launch of the Kavango-Zambezi (KAZA) uni-visa in December last year. This uni-visa allows visitors to stay in Zambia or Zimbabwe (or both) for up to 30 days for payment of 50 US dollars. The visa also covers people who want to enter Botswana for day-trips through the Kazungula border post.

 
According to Zimbabwe Council for Tourism representative for Matabeleland North, Barbara Murasiranwa, “Arrivals into Victoria Falls via Zambia had gone down prior to the re-launch of the uni-visa, but right now arrivals improved significantly because tourists can just arrive in Zambia and then proceed to Zimbabwe after paying just 50 dollars and they can still go back to Zambia or Zimbabwe again without facing any problems for a month.”

 

This uni-visa was first introduced during the 2014 UNWTO general assembly co hosted by Zimbabwe and Zambia. But, the uni-visa collapsed in December 2015 due to logistical and legal challenges.
