Zimbabwe has officially run out of convenient KAZA univisa stickers, leaving tourists with no other option but to purchase regular, single-country visas upon entry.
According to Tourism Update, all entry points including Harare International Airport, Victoria Falls International Airport, Kazungula Border (Botswana) and the Victoria Falls Border have run out of stock.
The KAZA univisa sticker was launched back in December 2016, and allows tourists to gain entry to both Zimbabwe and Zambia for just $50. It also covers day-entry to Botswana via the Kazungula borders.
In the meantime, visitors will have to shell out between $30 and $55 for regular Zimbabwean visas, which are available at all points of entry. They will then also be required to purchase separate Zambian visas.
This follows Zambia’s announcement of the same predicament in recent weeks, and it spells trouble for both countries’ tourism industries.
Tourism Update adds that both tourism authorities have been unavailable for comment.
Thankfully for South Africans planning on visiting Vic Falls, Zimbabwe is one of SA’s visa-free destinations.
