Control in Harare, Zimbabwe, on the Website Address given above. Once the application is approved by the Department, the visitor would then receive a VISA APPROVAL LETTER through the system. This makes them
eligible to approach any Zimbabwean PORT OF ENTRY.
The actual visa would then be physically issued at the PORT OF ENTRY upon payment of the requisite Visa Fee, with this enabling the applicant to enter Zimbabwe.
Citizens of Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark are not required to have a visa in advance, they can get the visa stamped on their passport at the port entry upon paying the visa fee of USD $30.00 for single entry and USD $45.00 for double entry.
You can find out if you are required to apply for an eVisa in advance by checking your nationality on the Zim evisa Visa Regime or Zim Immigration Visa Regime.
