Here are my observations for Zambia Airport. When you get off the plane, it's steps. Make your way to the terminal building quickly, so you have a good chance of being near the front of the line to get your visa. It takes a minimum of five minutes per person. First, they ask you if you are going over to Zimbabwe, that is a different type of visa and costs more money. At the head of the queue is not the time to have a debate with your fellow travellers about whether you might want to do this. Currently, the cost of the visa is $50 cash. The officer then tears off a sticky visa from a large roll of them and then has to meticulously place it on a whole page of your passport without it sticking anywhere else. They then have to write in all your details. It seems to take forever. There is a different line for Zambian nationals, but you can imagine how long it takes to process quite a large plane full of people. If you are the only Tauck people on the plane, as soon as you are through, you can get to the Tauck rep and be on your way, if not, you will only get to the hotel when the last Tauck traveller is through the line, could be a long time.
