GOVERNMENT has printed 50, OOO Kavango Zambezi Transfrontier Conversation Area (KAZA) Uniform Visas for foreign visitors into Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Finance Minister Felix Mutati  announced   that  50,000 KAZA Visas had been printed  following the  successful  completion  of the printing process .
This is according to a statement released by Ministry of Finance Head of Public Relations Chileshe Kandeta.
Mr  Mutati expressed confidence that the completion of the printing
process and subsequent issuance of the KAZA Visa would boost  the tourism Industry in the country.
“With our relatively stable exchange rate coupled with low inflation at 6.3 per cent,  the issuance of KAZA Visas from our side will result in increased tourist inflows,”  Mr. Mutati said.
He said  the stable macroeconomic fundamentals were critical to investment planning, including planning for festive holidays by both domestic and foreign tourists.
“The KAZA Visa is a practical example of the Governments’ efforts to reduce the cost of doing business,” he said.
The KAZA Visa will be available through the Zambia Immigration Department, to citizens of 65 countries which coincide with those who are eligible to receive Visas on arrival in both Zambia and Zimbabwe.
Eligible visitors under the initiative will only be issued one Visa, stocked by both Zambia and Zimbabwe, to enable them enter both countries.
