Description [ correction ]

This border post at Sesheke / Katima is situated between Zambia and Namibia. The nearest town to this border is Katima Mulilo in Namibia. Payment can be done in Namibian Dollars, South African Rand or Pula.

You need to fill in an immigration form and have your passport stamped. You can purchase a cross border permit for a vehicle here for NAD308 (2019).

The Zambian side has new buildings, but the red tape has not changed at all! (2019).

Two hours and 7 counters/stops to pass through and there was nobody else in the queue.

Firstly you have to pass all the trucks and find a parking place in front of the building.

Secondly you have to get rid of all the ‘Runners” who want to sell you Kwatcha, the local currency in which all transactions are done on the border. They give a bad rate so use the bank. The ATM may be out of order. They take ZAR and scan the notes, but do not take USD.

Procedure: (based on 2019):
1.Thermo screening
2. Passport stamp.
3. Go to office they send you adjacent to entrance to get 'permission form' (not clear why).
4. Vehicle Import permit Kwatcha 275.
5. Customs Insurance Disc Kwatcha 30 - display disc in car window.
6. Road Permit USD20 - valid 90 days - keep this to not have to pay at Toll Gates (Council levies are charged separately and they ask what they want)
7. On exit pay Kwatcha 50 for council levy.

The border post facility was upgraded recently and this is now a very efficient and pleasant border post.

You can withdraw money at the ATM at the border as there is also an official bank where dollars and other currencies can be exchanged and also an ATM that only accepts VISA. Do not use the money changers. (May-2019).
