Zimbabwe Visa – How to apply for a Zimbabwean visa

Has Zimbabwe been on your mind for your next trip? If so, you will need to obtain a Zimbabwe visa to travel to Zimbabwe for tourism and business purposes. Also, you should make sure that you have a passport that is up to date and in order before your trip to Zimbabwe. Your passport should have a minimum of (2) blank visa pages in it to allow for any visa stamps that will be needed. Also, your passport should have at least six months validity left on it before you travel to Zimbabwe to avoid any unnecessary issues.

Zimbabwe Visa Requirements

For a tourist visa to Zimbabwe, you will need to present the necessary documentation. These documentations include a Zimbabwe visa application form, (2) approved passport photographs, an original, signed United States passport and an itinerary of your trip to Zimbabwe.

Everything mentioned above in regards to a tourist visa will need to be provided to obtain a business visa with two more conditions. A business letter and business invitation are necessary for travelers who apply for a business visa to Zimbabwe. The business invitation should describe the applicant, state the applicant’s business activities, and should declare the type of visa along with validity length. Also, a business letter will include the same information as a business invitation with the addition of proof of sufficient funds for your trip to Zimbabwe.

An official visa to Zimbabwe will require applicants to provide a Zimbabwe visa application form, (2) approved passport photographs, an original, signed United States passport and a State Department Letter addressed to the “Embassy of Zimbabwe, Washington, D.C.” The State Department Letter should include the reason for the trip along with travel dates.
