New Tourism Levy for Botswana

Botswana’s Ministry of Environment Natural Resources, Conservation, and Tourism has announced the implementation of a Tourism Development Levy.

The US $30 levy, effective from 1 June 2017, will be obligatory for all visitors to Botswana with the exception of residents and citizens of the Southern African Development Community member states.

According to the Ministry, the implementation is being undertaken in an effort to "raise funds for conservation and national tourism development in order to support the growth of the industry…resultantly improving the lives of the people of Botswana.”

Payment can be made at all ports of entry to Botswana using cash, debit and credit cards. Visitors will receive a unique receipt valid for 30 days which can be used for multiple entries.  The tourism levy does not apply to children under the age of 10 years.
