The Zambia Tourism Board’s Marketing Manager Doris Kofi and her delegation were recently in New York at the feted New York Times Travel Show to market the new uni-visa for Zimbabwe and Zambia to the global travel industry.

Mrs Kofi said:

“The Kaza Visa, which we launched last year, is beneficial because it saves tourists’ time and money because they only have to obtain one visa to visit both countries at a cost of just US$50 . . . The Kaza visa can be obtained on arrival at the port of entry and is valid for 30 days as long as the visa holder remains within Zambia and Zimbabwe. This visa also covers those who visit Botswana for a day trip through Kazungula border.”

Mrs Kofi said that the delegation was also showcasing Zambia’s numerous tourism highlights to US tourists, travel operators and the media.

The New York Times Travel Show attracts over 20, 000 travellers and industry professionals, at the famous Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City.

ZTB tourism promotions Manager Angela Chikumbi-Chimpinde and Ministry of Tourism and Arts acting principal tourism development and research officer Chilala Habasimbi were in the Zambian delegation to the three-day annual travel show
