Most business visitors to Botswana require a Business Visa, though some foreign nationals are visa exempt. Business Visas can be issued for a single entry or for multiple entries and allow an initial stay of up to 90 days. Business Visa extensions are uncommon and granted at the discretion of the immigration authorities.
Foreign nationals intending to conduct hands-on work for up to 90 days in Botswana require a Short-Term Work Permit.
Foreign nationals whose assignment exceeds 90 days or who will be on host payroll require an Employment Visa to enter Botswana and must apply for a Wo​rk Permit.​​​
Detailed Immigration Snapshots, Document Lists and Process Guides are available to clients on request.
