Tickets and Visas

A visa is an official document to enter a country that issued it. There are many different types of visas that allow foreigners to do different things such as travel for leisure, studies and work purposes in a particular country. The validity of the visa is the period within which a holder of a Zambian visa has to enter Zambia and not the period in which the holder is entitled to remain in Zambia.

Types of visas in Zambia include:

  • Single entry visa - A single entry visa allows a traveler to enter Zambia only once during the validity of the visa
  • Double entry visa - A double entry visa allows a traveler to enter Zambia twice during the validity of the visa
  • Multiple entry visa - A multiple entry visa allows a traveler to enter Zambia multiple times during the validity of the visa. Multiple entry visas in Zambia are only issued by the Headquarters through the e-visa facility
  • Transit visa - Transit visas are issued to nationals who require visas to enter Zambia and are transiting through using land transport. Transit visas in Zambia are valid for a maximum period of seven days
  • Day tripper visa - A day tripper visa is issued at a port of entry to a tourist who visits Zambia for a period of less than 24 hours and makes exit through the same port. This visa is also used for tourists visiting Zambia and wish to visit a neighboring country and re-enter within 24 hours

Single, double and multiple visas are valid for ninety days from the date of first issuance, except for nationals from the United States of America whose multiple entry visas have a validity of three years, on reciprocal basis.

All ordinary visitors and tourists are entitled to a free ninety days visit in any period of twelve months from the day of first entry into Zambia whilst business visitors are entitled to a free thirty days visit in any period of twelve months.

An airline ticket is a form of document or electronic record, issued by an airline or a travel agency which confirms that a person is entitled to a seat on an aircraft. An airline ticket is required in order for a traveler to obtain a boarding pass during check-in at the airport. With both a boarding pass and an airline ticket, the passenger is then allowed to board the plane.

Travel agents have excellent relations with various airlines, and can book all air tickets on behalf of clients for domestic, regional and international flights. They also offer detailed information on visa requirements on visa initiatives, actions and support. Travel agents handle visas for any country that you may require. They provide detailed information on how to apply for any visa, the required forms and the current visa fees. Travel agents can also check your visa application for completeness before it is sent for submission.
