Welcome to the Zambia Department of Immigration website

The development of this website is part of the Zambia Department of Immigration's initiative to facilitate the travel of persons seeking to enter Zambia for investment, business and tourism purposes. It is expected that the provision of information on Zambia's entry/visa requirements through a website will enable persons to readily access that information and to download any required application forms.

In addition, the processes for assessing visa and permit applications are being streamlined to provide new levels of service consistent with the Government of the Republic of Zambia's desire to attract investment and tourism in Zambia.

Who We Are

The Zambia Department of Immigration aims to effectively and efficiently facilitate and regulate the entry and exit of persons and control the stay of immigrants and visitors in the country in order to contribute to internal security and sustainable socio-economic development.

The Department of Immigration is committed to providing efficient, transparent and professional service.

The Department has its headquarters in Lusaka, the country's capital city, with regional offices in all the nine provinces of Zambia (see the Contacts page for physical address).
