  1. Double entry visa for Zimbabwe - if required.

  2. Return air tickets or vehicle registration particulars - if required.

  3. Zambian visas: Passport holders which do not need visas are Canadian, Australian, New Zealand, most African countries, South African.Most other passport holders therefore need visas which can be obtained at the border for anything from US$ 10.00 to US$ 25.00. However, Danish, Swedish and Finnish clients need to obtain visas from a Zambian Embassy before entering. These passport holders CANNOT obtain visas from the border post.
