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. Travelers who ordinarily require a visa to come to Zambia are eligible to apply through this facility after submitting the required information and payment.

iVisa offers a fast and simple solution to obtaining your Zambian e-Visa. 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.


  • Passport with at least 6-month validity
  • Hotel booking/accommodation confirmation
  • Return flight ticket
  • Passport-size photo (digital)
  • A scanned copy of passport bio page
  • Cover letter addressed to the Director General of Immigration. It needs to be signed and dated, and contain the dates and purpose of travel, and where the applicant is staying while in Zambia.
