How does the Zambia eVisa work?
The Republic of Zambia, more specifically the Ministry of Home Affairs (Department of Immigration), launched the eVisa system in October 2015. The electronic visa (eVisa) is an online system for applying for a visa to Zambia. Travelers who ordinarily require a visa to come to Zambia are eligible to apply through this procedure after submitting the required information and payment.
iVisa offers a fast and simple solution to obtaining your Zambian eVisa. Travelers fill out an online application and are sent an electronic Visa on Arrival Tourist Letter. The immigration official upon arrival can look up the letter on their system, but we highly recommend that travelers print out the document. Upon presentation of the letter, the immigration official will provide the visa at the airport. It is all a very simple process.
How long does it take to apply for a Zambia eVisa?
Less than 10 minutes.
How can I apply for a Zambia eVisa?
To start with your application, you have to work on your application. There is no need to worry since it is a straightforward process to complete. Also, iVisa can help you if you require any assistance with the application. Simply contact their customer support, and someone will help you in every step.
The first step requires Ghanaian to fill in basic information like name, address, passport info, date of arrival in Zambia, and a couple of other things. You also need to select the visa type and processing time.
The second step will ask Ghanaian to send their payment and review all the information that was provided. It is more important than you think. If you make a mistake and you did not diligently revise it before your application is processed, you need to apply again. You will lose both time and money since iVisa has a strict no-refund policy after the processing.
The last step consists of additional photo upload. Ghanaian will be required to upload some of the documents mentioned above, however, may be asked to upload something else as well. It depends on your personal circumstance. For example, if you travel with your underage child, you need an authorization letter from the other parent.
