- Visa: British passport holders require a visa to enter Zambia. It is best to obtain visas prior to travel in order to avoid any potential problems with the airlines or with the Zambian Immigration Authorities. Any non-Zambian national overstaying their visa, not renewing their residence permit or working without a permit, including volunteer workers who should obtain business visas from the Zambian High Commission in London prior to departure or upon arrival in Lusaka, risk arrest, imprisonment and deportation. Please visit www.fco.gov.uk for more information.
- Arrival info: Volunteers should arrive two days before the project starts for orientation in Lusaka, before travelling to the project location. YAZ can arrange for transfer from the airport on arrival, which will cost about 20€.
