Can one obtain a visa on the train?
Immigration matters are always best dealt with by immigration experts and well in advance. We advise our passengers to complete visa arrangements before taking the train. For Tanzanian and Zambian nationals, immigration formalities are relatively easier and are dealt with on board. Our experience is that nationalities, other than Zambians and Tanzanians, have varying conditions of entry into Zambia or Tanzania. We therefore strongly recommend that one undertakes prior consultations with the relevant immigration authorities before travelling. Further details may be obtained from www.immigration.go.tz in the case of Tanzanian Immigration or www.zambiaimmigration.gov.zm in the case of Zambian Immigration.
