Zimbabwe Visa Requirements

Zimbabwe Visa Requirements

A Visa to enter Zimbabwe is required by several nationalities; please read the full details listed below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There are 3 categories:

Category A: Countries whose nationals do not require a pre-applied Visa. No action required, you will be granted easy entry at any border post.

Category B: Countries whose nationals are granted a Zimbabwe visa at port of entry on payment of requisite visa fees. These visas are easiest obtained on your arrival at the Airport or border post. If you get them done via an agency in your home country they will often cost you quite a bit more and be a lot more hassle.

Category C: Countries whose nationals are required to apply for and obtain a Zimbabwe visa prior to travelling. Unfortunately this is a bit of a pain, but you have to apply through an agency or the Zimbabwe High Commission in your home country.

Find out the Category of your country in the tables below.

All Categories need:-

• Passport valid for at least 6 months from your date of entry.

• Return ticket to your country (or enough money to buy one)

• Sufficient funds to cover your stay in Zimbabwe.

• Enough blank pages in your passport to fit the required entry visa.

If you have purchased a single entry visa upon arrival and then decide to leave Zimbabwe, even for a few hours, you will need to buy another visa to re-enter Zimbabwe. In this instance you should buy a double entry visa upon arrival, it works out cheaper.

NB – Multiple Entry Visas – cannot be obtained at the port of entry into Zimbabwe.  You may enter Zimbabwe on a single entry visa and then obtain a Multiple Entry Visa from the town office – but this may take up to 7 working days to be issued.

Alternatively a multiple entry visa can be obtained from the Zimbabwe Embassy in your country prior to departure for Zimbabwe.

Children – As of June 2012 – Zimbabwe will now be charging FULL VISA fees for any individual who is required to have a VISA despite their age. This includes infants and children who were previously being exempted from this. This has been imposed with immediate effect.

CATEGORY C: ZIMBABWE VISA FEES

Single Entry US$65 to US$100

Category C nationals can only get a single entry Zimbabwe visa.

 

British Passports Holders

You need a Zimbabwe visa to visit Zimbabwe. This can be obtained from the Zimbabwe Embassy in London or on arrival in Zimbabwe.  To be honest it is easier and in most cases cheaper just to get one at the port of entry.

The current charge for a single entry Zimbabwe visa issued on arrival is US$ 55 and US$ 70 for a Double Entry Zimbabwe visa, although this could change at any stage. If you have not obtained a Zimbabwe visa before travelling, you should bring enough cash with you to pay for your visa on arrival – (no credit/debit cards or cheques).

Visitors are currently being given entry permission for anything up to 90 days but you are strongly advised to check that the number of days given at the port of entry covers your intended period of stay, although you can apply to have this period renewed and extended if required.

 

USA Passport Holders

You need a Zimbabwe visa to visit Zimbabwe; this can be obtained from the Zimbabwe Embassy in the United States or on arrival in Zimbabwe.  To be honest it is easier and in most cases cheaper just to get one at the port of entry.

If you have not obtained a Zimbabwe visa before travelling, you should bring enough cash with you to pay for your visa on arrival – (no credit/debit cards or cheques).
