Visa requirements for Foreigners

You must apply directly to the high commission for this visa. No third party can assist.


Canadian citizens using a Canadian passport can buy a visa-on-arrival (VOA) at any official entry point into Zambia.

Single entry visas cost US$50 on arrival; and double-entry visas cost US$80 on arrival in Zambia. This is for Canadians going for tourism, visits, business or safaris. You can arrive at any international airport or official frontier border crossing using the VoA system. Just pay for the visa on arrival in Zambia.

Canadian citizens using a Canadian passport seeking MULTIPLE-ENTRY visas must apply in advance for a visa in Canada.
