Anyone tested Zambia's new Visa laws?

Has anyone here tested Zambia's new Visa laws?
ie, stayed 14 or more days and been granted a waiver?
We will be there in just over 2 weeks (staying 17 nights)and would be interested if this is being applied to the "letter of the law"?

Cheers
Marc

Hi Marc

I do not know, but I receive a weekly letter from Robin Pope Safaris and at the start it says very clearly that if anyone is travelling to Zambia for more than 14 days, you need a visa. Some countries can get one there, other countries must have a visa before travelling and they advise to check the website for Zambia.

Kind regards

Kaye

Every time I have been to Zambia I have required a visa. The only question beinbg whether you have to pay for it or not, usually yopu do not if you have something from your agent/ camp owners, providing they are owned by Zambians. What changes have occurred?

sniktawk-the change is that if you are staying more than 14 nights, you have to pay for the visa. no more visa waiver from a lodge or camp. if less than 14 days, you can still get a waiver and not have to pay.

Well that makes sense, the longer you stay the more you pay.

cooncat2 -- that's the 'special' rate for US citizens - they have to buy a multiple-entry visa. All other nationalities can buy a single-entry visa. Here are the rates, www.zambiaimmigration.gov.zm/zims/VISA_FEES.aspx
