Multi Entry Visa?Hi all,
In one month I will be travelling to Zimbabwe. I am planning to visit the VicFalls of course, both from the Zim AND Zam side.
After this (Zimbabwe > Zambia > Zimbabwe), we are going to Botswana (ao Chobe NP) and finally back to Zimbabwe to enjoy the country life.
Now, my question is: do I need to buy a multi entry visa for Zimbabwe?
I'm only spending 1 day in Zambia (so I suppose I can buy a day visa for Zambia), and a couple of days in Botswana (Is it right that Botswana has no visa?).
Thank you for your advice!

1It sounds like you need to enter Zim 3 times, so you will need either a multi entry or 3 singles- you need to find out how much they will cost as 3 singles may only be the same as one multi-entry, and you have to get a multi-entry in advance which is a pain.
You may be better to go Zim-Zam-Bots-Zim to avoid one of your Zim entries.
You need to tell us what passport you have for anything else- visa costs for Zim vary and whilst you probably don't need one for Botswana, I can't say for sure without knowing what nationality you are.

Indeed, you are right that Zim-Zam-Bots-Zim is easier for the visa-thing, however unfortunatly this is not possible.
We have Dutch (EU) passport.
But since I probably won't need a visa for Botswana, when I'm entering Zim from Botswana is the ("old") Zim visa not valid anymore?

3OK, so your Zim visa will be $30 I think, so $90 for 3 single entries.
It doesn't work like that- whether or not you need a Botswana visa doesn't change the fact you are leaving Zimbabwe.

7Where did you go from Tanzania?
Tanzania, Kenya and Uganda have a special agreement which means you can go from one country to another and re-enter on a single entry visa.
So if you go from Tanzania to Kenya and back there's no new visa.
If you go from Tanzania to Zambia and back you need a new visa.

8It was really strange since we went from Tanzania to Kenya and back to Tanzania, I know they have this special agreement but the offcials at the border said we had to buy another visa since the older one was still valid (if you don't understand it, neither do I).
In the end we could enter Tanzania without buying another visa, strange African rules...
I asked this, because I heard other stories as well that if the former visa is still valid, they won't give you a new one.
And is it possible to get either the double- or multi entry visa at Harare airport?
