KAZA Univisa online


I've seen various posts about people being denied a KAZA Univisa even though they are eligible. I've seen on the FCO page for Zambia that it is possible to apply for this online in advance. Is there any reason we shouldn't go this route?


Only asking because I've not seen this mentioned as an option in any of the threads where people have raised concerns about potentially not being granted one on arrival.

The online system is meant for people who can't get visas on arrival. I know people who have used it with success but only those from countries who need to (eg India). I've seen posts from others who have tried and had problems.

In any case, you are posting in the Livingstone forum, so presumably you are arriving in Zambia? I haven't seen any reports of people having problems being given univisas in Zambia, it's Zim that is the problem, and only for some nationalities. Basically if they can get more money out of you by making you buy a single/double entry. For Zimbabwe, the visa fee for British, for example, is higher than the univisa fee.

Zambia has no issues giving out univisas, since for most nationalities a Zambian visa is free, so if you want a KAZA for $50 they are more than happy to take your money.

OP. Can you please share your source of people being denied Kaza visas on arrival?
