We have some good news: as initially reported last week, the Zambian Government has now reduced visa fees payable by foreign nationals visiting the country with the aim of encouraging more tourists to visit Victoria Falls and other parts of the country.
The newly revised fees apply to all nationalities requiring a visa to visit Zambia, and have come into effect today (19th November 2008):
Single Entry: $50-00
Double Entry: $80-00
This is a substantial reduction for countries such as Britain and the United States of America.
It should however be noted that visa entry requirements remain unchanged, and while certain guests may need to apply for their visa prior to travelling, most can obtain a visa on arrival in Zambia.
