The Government of the Republic of Zambia, through the Ministry of Home Affairs (Department of Immigration), launched the e-Visa facility in October 2015. The electronic visa (e-Visa) is an online facility for applying for a visa to Zambia. The government of Zambia introduced a special Transit visa to travelers who are transiting through using land transport. They are valid for a maximum of 7 days.

iVisa offers a simple and fast solution to obtaining your Zambian Transit e-Visa. Travelers fill out an online application and are sent an electronic Visa on Arrival Tourist Letter for Transit. The immigration official can look up the letter on their system upon arrival, 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.
