Zambia and Zimbabwe have joined forces to create a uni-visa that will allow travelers to visit both countries effortlessly with just one visa.

The uni-visa was first announced at the World Travel Market London earlier this month. It will officially be launched in Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, on Nov. 28. The 30-day visa will be available at Livingstone and Lusaka airports and the border posts at Victoria Falls and Kazungula, Zambia, and will cost $50.

Speaking at a press briefing in Harare, Zimbabwe’s tourism minister, Walter Mzembi, said the uni-visa would be available to travelers from 40 countries, including the U.S., the U.K., Greece, Portugal, Germany and New Zealand.

According to Mzembi, the uni-visa for the two countries is the first step toward the introduction of a more global Southern African Development Community (SADC) uni-visa, which will allow travelers access to the entire SADC region with just one visa.
