Online visas to boost Zambia’s tourism sector
Zambia’s introduction of eVisas is likely to boost its tourism sector. The country’s introduction of online applications earlier this year follows a similar move by Zimbabwe last year.
“It is a great idea to be able to apply for visas on line. Anything that speeds up the visa application process can only help encourage tourism to Zambia, so long as it is an efficient process” says Regional Manager of Red Savannah Africa, Albee Yeend.
The on-line visa applies to all nationals that currently require visas for Zambia.
An official from the Zambia Department of Immigration told Tourism Update the process involves downloading the visa form from its website and then emailing it through to the department with the necessary documents attached. The department is expected to respond after two days. Once the visa has been approved, a confirmation letter is sent to the applicant and the visa is available at the port of entry.
