VISA

Queuing for Visas can be very strenuous and burdening on our mental health. Sometimes the rigorous process involved becomes a big source of discouragement to those aspiring to travel out of a country. Holders of the Zimbabwean passport can calm down a bit because although Zimbabwe’s passport may not be the most powerful in the world (that would be the United States and the United Kingdom), it may not even come close, but there are some countries Zimbabweans can visit without having to get a visa.

As usual, terms and conditions do apply. Pass for free entry into a country can change over time so it is essential to constantly be in touch with visa proceedings. Also, a number of these countries only grant free visa when a traveller’s intentions are leisure. So, if you are planning to take advantage of the visa-free status and getting a job there, you might be in for a huge shock. Nonetheless, with a Zimbabwean passport, you can visit over 50 countries in the world without a visa.

It is important to note that Zimbabwe also has its own terms and conditions for travellers coming into the country. However, the country makes significant efforts towards making her embrace wider to visitors, tourists and travelers. For the record, Zimbabwe  has been ranked by the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) as one of the top 30 countries that have made major efforts to reduce travel restrictions.

This is not so bad for a country trying to free itself from the shackles of gross political, social and economic sanctions.
