Visa Application in Southern Africa details:
Visa rules have been changing country to country. He is from The Nederland. He can stay 90 days without visa. I am from Turkey and I need to apply visa which is 150€.
I don’t know why I wrote my notes to Turkish passport doesn’t need visa for Namibia. I was lucky on the border that nobody asked about visa. We told them on the border; we want to stay 30 days and they gave us stamps.
I suppose that most countries holder don’t need visa but They have some rules about how long want to stay. They gave stamp to Ferry for 90 days stay. They told me Turkish passport can take 30 days.
When we fly to Holland and came back He had again 90 days and I had 30 days. But when we were coming back to Madagascar He couldn’t get another 90 days. They said that He needs to fly from Holland to have new 90 days. But They gave me again another 30 days.
The Nederland passport doesn’t need visa for 30 days stay, Turkish passport has to apply visa which is 50 USD.
When we were on the border They didn’t ask about the visa to me and we took a stamp to stay 5 days in.
Finally Ferry and I have same rules. We don’t need visa. We didn’t know how long we can stay because they didn’t write any note on the stamp how many days we can be in.
Botswana doesn’t want to visa from Turkey and Nederland (also all European passport) for 30 days. But we had to pay road tax. You can look detail here.
If you are going to Zambia as well Best way to have Kaza Visa. They run out the visa sticker there fore we got single entry and 30 days visa which was 30 USD. If you want to have multiple entry It is 45 USD.
They have also daily visa which is a little cheaper If you want to visit only Victoria falls. Daily visa is 25 USD. But I saw on the border They were giving 3 or 5 days for daily visa. Maybe you can ask to have it like that 😉

We must apply for visa. Good think that you can do it on the border. They have standard price to visa for everyone. Just currency was a little different. When we look to list was writing 75 USD or 895 R (around 68 usd) or 3.925 Mt (around 65 usd). If you have Mozambique money with you You can pay less. But the border exchange doesn’t good price.
I suppose everybody has to pat on the border. Means visa on arrival. We paid 25 € (also pay 28 USD) each for 30 days.
If you plan to stay more than 30 days You should say on the border.
