Press Statement on the Visa Abolition Agreements with Angola for Diplomatic, Official and Ordinary Passport Holders

As you are already aware, Zambia and Angola agreed to waive visa requirements for their citizens traveling between the two countries. This happened on 2nd May, 2018 during the state visit to Zambia by His Excellency, the President of the Republic of Angola, Mr. João Lourenço where the substantive Minister of Home Affairs and his Angolan counterpart signed two (02) visa exemption agreements, one on visa exemption for Diplomatic and Official passport holders and the other on visa exemption for Ordinary passport holders.

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 visa and permit 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.
