Minimum requirements for tourists entering Namibia that don’t need a visa:
A few nationalities will be required to pre-arrange their entry visa to Namibia and Botswana. Just so you know, if this visa is required, it will need to be a multiple-entry visa and not a single-entry visa. Please check on booking this safari if you need a pre-arranged visa.
The KAZA UNIVISA is a standard tourist visa for the SADC region, which Zambia and Zimbabwe shall pilot for six (6) months.
The UNIVISA will be issued at a standard fee of US$50; the cash will be required.
Validity – the KAZA UNIVISA will be valid for 30 days as long as you remain in Zimbabwe and Zambia. Clients can cross into Zimbabwe/Zambia as frequently as they like within 30 days.
It also covers those who visit Botswana for day trips through the Kazangula Borders – it will not be valid if staying in Botswana overnight; in this case, you would need to purchase a new Visa. The UNIVISA cannot be extended; however, you can buy a new UNIVISA (up to 3 per year).
