Zambia is set to reduce its visa fees. The country's Minister of Finance and National Planning, Dr Situmbeko Musokotwane, announced in the 2022 Budget Address that visa fees will be cut by 50% from 01 January 2022. "[...] Madam, Zambia remains a destination of choice for tourism. To improve our competitiveness, I propose to reduce visa fees of all categories by 50 percent.[...]."
Currently, single entry visa cost USD50, double entry visa USD80, the KAZA UNIVISA USD50, multiple entry visa USD150 and day tripper visa USD20. Single, double and multiple entry visas are valid for 90 days from the date of first issuance, with the exception of nationals from the United States of America, whose multiple entry visas have a validity of three years, on mutually agreed reciprocal basis. Multiple entry visas are only issued through Zambia's e-visa facility. The day tripper visa only applies at Victoria Falls and Kazungula Border Controls.
