What is the Zambia eVisa?

The Zambian e-visa is an official document that allows entry and travel in Zambia for tourist purposes, it is not considered a visa on arrival so you need to apply in advance. It is an alternative to visas issued at Zambian missions and ports of access.

The process to obtain the document at the government website can be complex, but at iVisa, we will ensure you don't have to worry about anything. We do all the hard work for you!

The electronic Zambia visa can be obtained 100% online so you don’t have to stand in long queues at the embassy or consulate.

With iVisa you can apply for a single-entry visa, double-entry visa, or multiple-entry visa.

If you apply for the single entry type, it means that you will be able to use your visa once, when you enter Zambia and you will not be able to leave and visit other countries during your stay. That also means that you’ll need to submit a new one every time you want to visit Zambia.

With the double-entry and multiple-entry Zambia eVisas, you can visit Zambia and leave the country to visit other countries during your stay and return to Zambia.

There is always a visa for everyone! Make sure you apply for the Visa that best suits your travel needs.
