Botswana, like a lot of other countries in this part of the world, seems to believe the more paperwork, the better.  I find the process for getting a Tourist Visa for Botswana to be overly stuffed with paperwork and ridiculously exhaustive.

I’ll break everything down for you below about how to go about getting the Botswana Tourist Visa.

For information on how to get a different type of visa for Botswana, go to this Botswana visa page.
