I’ll break everything down for you below about how to go about getting the Botswana Work Visa (a.k.a. Botswana Employment Visa).  I hope you have a lot of patience because you will definitely need it for all the paperwork these guys make you have to get.  Be sure to start early as well because the process is definitely going to take a LONG time.
