Confused about Zim/Zam Day Trip

If you do the day trip to Zambia from Zimbabwe do you pay a Zim exit fee and then the $20 Zam Day Tripper Visa fee and do you then need a new visa to re-enter Zim?

There is no exit fee from Zim at the Vic Falls, you then pay the Zam day tripper fee, but you will need a new visa to return into Zim unless you get a double visa on first arrival into Zim. you will need to ask for this on arrival. You could get a double or multiple visa before leaving the US by post from the Zim Embassy, but there is no real advantage, as the fees are the same.

Note that the correct fee will be required in US$, notes no older than 2004, no marks, tears, tape, thus newish is best.

I've heard that you don't need a double-entry or a multiple-entry visa into zimbabwe as long as you don't sped a night outside zimbabwe - am I right?

HI, yes you are right if you dont stay the night in Zambia and you just get the day tripper - you will not need a double entry visa.

Hope you have a great trip.
