Yes, all travellers need a visa for entry to Zimbabwe. Visas are issued on arrival (VoA) at the respective point of entry and vary in length depending on the need of the traveller.

All travellers must obtain visas at the port of entry as currently there is no option of obtaining a visa through the Zimbabwean Embassy.

Travellers coming from South Africa will need two blank pages in their passports to adhere to immigration regulations. Travellers coming from anywhere else will require just one.

Zimbabwe is quite strict on cash flow in and out of the country, as authorities hope to limit the influx of U.S. dollars into the country.
