Want to visit Victoria Falls? You need to know about the UNIVISA

So you want to visit Victoria Falls. But from which side do you want to experience it – Zimbabwe or Zambia? The decision might be a thing of the past.

As of 28th November 2014, certain nationalities will be able to purchase the new UNIVISA when traveling to Zimbabwe or Zambia at the point of entry into either of the two countries.

Ultimately saving travelers time and money.

Furthermore, if it proves successful, Angola, Namibia and Botswana are set to join the program.

Global support for UNIVISA


Victoria Falls UNIVISA Fun fact: if the water is on left and the land on the right, you’re looking at Vic Falls from Zimbabwe. The opposite is true from Zambia.

According to Voice of America, Zimbabwe Tourism Minister Walter Mzembi was quoted as saying: “We are doing what other progressive parts of the world are doing. You enter one European country; you enter 27. We are saying this is the first little step toward the promulgation of a SADC UNIVISA.”

The project has already received support from international communities. Swedish Ambassador to Zimbabwe, Lars Ronnas, said he is very optimistic about its success.
