The Ministry of Environment Natural Resources’ Conservation and Tourism through the Botswana Tourism Organization has introduced an obligatory Tourism Development Levy (TDL).The levy will be used to raise funds for conservation and national tourism development.
The levy goes into effect on 1 June 2017 and is $30 US. Visitors can pay for the levy at the ports of entry through cash (US Dollars), and, at major border crossing and international airports, through electronic payment machines, debit or credit card, too. After the payment, a unique receipt corresponding to the passport will be generated. The receipt should then be presented to Immigration Officials. The passport and the receipt will be stamped and handed back to the passport holder. The receipt is valid for a 30 day period and can be used for multiple entry.
All visitors to Botswana in exception of residents and citizens of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states are required to pay the new $30 levy.
