If you wish to apply for a KAZA visa, which allows you to enter Zimbabwe and Zambia, you must attach the same documentation, minus the address of your accommodation in Zimbabwe.
If you wish to apply for a 1 or 2 entries transit visa to the country, you must attach the same documentation except for the proof of residence from your country of origin and your accommodation address in Zimbabwe.
If you are missing any of these items, your application will be saved so that you can complete it at a later stage.
The Zimbabwe visa application is processed online, without going to the embassy or consulate. The Zimbabwe eVisa application on Visagov has been simplified to minimise the possibility of error. You will be able to process it in your own language, and it will take no more than 5 minutes to complete.
Please print out the visa that arrives in your email and present it with your passport upon arrival in Zimbabwe.
