The Zambian government said on Monday that it has completed the process of printing unified visas for foreign visitors to Zambia and Zimbabwe.

The two countries launched the unified pilot visa project, commonly known as KAZA visas in 2014, which enables tourists to visit the two countries using only one visa.

The project is expected to incorporate three other countries, namely Angola, Botswana and Namibia, that form the Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (KAZA), a transfrontier conservation area.

Minister of Finance Felix Mutati said the completion of the printing process and subsequent issuance of the KAZA visas will have exponential benefits to Zambia’s tourism industry as it will result in increased tourist inflows.

The KAZA visa, he said, was a practical example of the government’s efforts to reduce the cost of doing business, according to a statement released by the finance ministry.

The KAZA visas will be available to citizens of 65 countries which coincide with those who were eligible to receive visas on arrival in the two countries, he added. Enditem
