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 to apply for a visa to Zambia. Travelers who ordinarily require a visa to come to Zambia are eligible to apply through this method after submitting the required information and payment.
iVisa offers a fast and simple solution to obtain 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. All you have to do is fill out our easy application form and thats it! iVisa will handle the rest.
How can I apply for a Zambia eVisa?
You have to complete your application form to process your order. There is no need to worry since it is a straightforward process to complete. Also, iVisa can help you if you require any assistance. Simply contact their customer support, and someone will help you in every step.
The first step will require you to fill in your 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.
In the second step you will have to send payment and review all the information that was provided. This step is very important. 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 because iVisa has a strict no-refund policy after processing.
The last step consists of additional photo upload. Citizens from Ghana will be required to upload some of the documents mentioned above, however, you may be asked to upload additional documents 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.
