Hi!
Are you doing the Dunes, Delta and Falls tour? If so, when?!

As for the visa, you have to apply for the visa ahead of time, and pay the $50 ahead of time through a money order.

Here is the link for the visa application:

You have to mail your passport to the embassy in Ottawa.

Have a nice day :)

I am Canadian and was easily able to get it at the border when I went two years ago. Did things change since then? Call the Zambian embassy in Ottawa to make sure as it will save you some money if you can get it there.

You should be able to get your VISA on arrival when you go through customs (i.e. where they stamp your passport as you are coming in). I didn't arrive at an airport and came by ground, but it literally takes 5 minutes for them to process your VISA. Just make sure you have USD to pay for it on arrival. If I remember correctly, the single entry VISA was $50 USD; I was coming in and out, so I think I paid about $75 USD for a dual entry VISA.

I'm Canadian and was there in September 2012.
