Zimbabwe and Zambia Reintroduce Univisa

After a short suspension, Zimbabwe and Zambia have relaunched the Kavango Zambezi Transfontier Conservation Area univisa, according to a report by Travel Weekly.

The univisa means tourists only need to obtain one visa to visit both Zimbabwe and Zambia. Ross Kennedy, African Travel and Tourism Association chairman and Africa Albida Tourism chief executive, said the relaunch was a positive step for the tourism sector in both countries, as tourism was such a powerful economic driver for each.

"The original trial year was a major success and was embraced and supported by travel agents and tour operators across the world," he said.

"This is now Phase 2 of the plan, following the pilot scheme from November 2014 to December 2015 when 50,000 visas were issued. Phase 3 will include Angola, Botswana and Namibia. Following this, it is planned and hoped that [the Southern African Development Community] will embrace the scheme."

The univisa, which was made available with immediate effect, is now expected to become a permanent scheme, and in the future will be obtainable at all ports of entry and also online.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
