Visa for Zambia
  • Does anyone know if the Zambian Embassy will work through the email contact listed on their website for passport holders from India? Also does anyone know if we need to have actual tickets purchased or if we can print out a proposed itinerary and submit that? It do not want to purchase tickets if there is a chance that we would not receive a visa in the time frame requested. Any input would be appreciated! Thank you!

  • Dear Traveleverywhere / checkmate

    Zambia does not have a lot of Embassys and the only one is in Tanzania but I can assist you to obtain the visas and help with your travel arrangements contact me at
  • This is correct, if you hold a Singapore or Indian passport, you can not obtain an entry visa at the port of entry, but instead must apply for one at a Zambian foreign mission. There's also a firm in Lusaka that will help you submit your application directly to the Zambian Immigration Headquarters, see It's usually not difficult but you have to allow sufficient time for processing (apply directly to HQ if you're in a hurry). American and British passport holders can get a visa at the port of entry (current fee for a single entry visa is $50). AJ
