Zimbabwe and Zambia sign MoU to revive Kaza Uni-Visa
Zimbabwe and Zambia signed a Memorandum of Agreement reviving the Kavango-Zambezi Transfrontier Conservation Area (Kaza) Uni-Visa.The agreement had been suspended in December last year, due to a shortage of stickers and the expiration of the previous MoU.
The MoU was signed in Livingstone on Friday by Home Affairs Minister Dr Ignatius Chombo and his Zambian counterpart Minister Steven Kampyongo. Tourism Ministers from the two countries- Charles Rommel Banda (Zambia) and Deputy Minister Anastancia Ndhlovu representing Walter Mzembi (Tourism and Hospitality) presided over the ceremony.
The two countries have now decided to elevate the KAZA Uni-Visa project to Kaza Uni Visa programme. This phase is expected to run for two years and continue beyond the two year period upon agreement by the parties.
This second phase now has a total of 65 countries participating and is expected in future to have more countries added.
