Zimbabwe immigration official wants that Zimbabwe should do away with tourist visas

Zimbabwe should do away with tourist visasAccording to Zimbabwe Department of Immigration principal director Clemence Masango, Zimbabwe must move away from issuing tourist visas and focus more on maximizing revnues spent by visitors during their staying period in the country. To quote Masango, “As a country, we need to move away from visas to the extent possible and also not amplify too much of the revenue that we get from visa fees. The real benefit that accrues to any economy from tourism is what tourists spend when they come here, not the $50 visa fees.”

The Kaza uni-visa is a project between Zimbabwe and Zambia, which was launched as a trial in 2014 but was discontinued a year later. This visa, which grants tourists access to both Zimbabwe and Zambia, was re-launched last December. If the trial run is successful, the ultimate vision is to include all five countries – Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Zambia and Zimbabwe that are part of the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area.
