Registration of nationals

To all Zambians in the Nordic and Baltic region

ONE of the major mandates of any foreign Mission is to account for its nationals who are resident in a country to which it is accredited. In this regard, the Embassy of Zambia has embarked on a registration exercise of its nationals resident in Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway and Sweden. The Mission has created an online registration facility through this website. Please fill-out the registration form provided and submit to the embassy through: info@zambiaembassy.se
When you register, the data will be strictly confidential and shall be used only for the development of a database to assist the Zambian Government with information to help in the identification of relevant skills, businesses operated by Zambians, Zambians working in various organisations, students, residents, etc. Your security and well-being is our concern!

Livestock

Procedures for Importation of Livestock and Pets into Zambia
For the importation of any livestock or livestock product and pets into Zambia from another country, it is always obligatory to obtain a Veterinary Permit from the Department of Research & Specialist Services (formally the Department of Veterinary & Tsetse Control Services). The Permit so obtained stipulates the conditions under which the importation will be carried out and which conditions the veterinary authorities of the exporting country must follow in preparing a Health Certificate.
The importer must first obtain an Import Permit from the headquarters of the department at Mulungushi House in Lusaka. This could be done through a contact person in Lusaka. The conditions contained on the permit are dependent on the type of livestock, pet or product, the country of origin and its disease status and the purpose for importing them.
The Import Permit so obtained must then be sent to the Veterinary authorities of the exporting country, who will use it as a guide to prepare a Health Certificate which must accompany the animals or products on entry into Zambia. The Permit issued in Zambia must also accompany the animals or products.
On arrival at destination, the importer MUST inform the nearest Veterinary Officer of the arrival of the products or animals, for the purpose of inspecting them.

Procedures for Importation of Livestock and Pets into Zambia
For the importation of any livestock or livestock product and pets into Zambia from another country, it is always obligatory to obtain a Veterinary Permit from the Department of Research & Specialist Services (formally the Department of Veterinary & Tsetse Control Services). The Permit so obtained stipulates the conditions under which the importation will be carried out and which conditions the veterinary authorities of the exporting country must follow in preparing a Health Certificate.
The importer must first obtain an Import Permit from the headquarters of the department at Mulungushi House in Lusaka. This could be done through a contact person in Lusaka. The conditions contained on the permit are dependent on the type of livestock, pet or product, the country of origin and its disease status and the purpose for importing them.
The Import Permit so obtained must then be sent to the Veterinary authorities of the exporting country, who will use it as a guide to prepare a Health Certificate which must accompany the animals or products on entry into Zambia. The Permit issued in Zambia must also accompany the animals or products.
On arrival at destination, the importer MUST inform the nearest Veterinary Officer of the arrival of the products or animals, for the purpose of inspecting them.
