ZIMBABWE and Zambia have agreed to implement a uni-visa regime starting next month to boost tourist arrivals between the two countries.

The neighbouring countries now expect to precede a common visa for Southern Africa, tourism minister Walter Mzembi said on Monday.

Zimbabwe and Zambia share the world famous Victoria Falls, one of the natural wonders of the world, and a premier tourist attraction. 

Mzembi told The Source that the concept has been approved by both governments after the two countries ran a pilot project when they co-hosted  the United Nations World Tourism Organisation 20th general assembly in August last year.

“At policy level we are done. We are just working on a few areas to ensure the process is smooth.

"As I speak we are talking to the World Bank and one of the issues is about funding the project,” said Mzembi said.

The agreement will also give the Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) an opportunity to evaluate the feasibility of a common visa before the bloc heads of state meet in Victoria Falls in August to consider the issue, he said.
