    I just received this information from SOAZ (Safari Operators Assn of Zimbabwe):

    Please be advised that upon arrival in Zimbabwe, you will be required to fill out a Currency Declaration Form to state how much currency you are bringing into Zimbabwe. You will be given a copy. Upon departure you will be required to show the copy.

    You already do a similar procedure with your weapons coming in and out of the country.

    The Currency Declaration is apparently to stop what the authorities believe to be a loophole whereby Operators are trying to get clients to take out money for them. Since in the current economic climate the Operators are seldom in a position to send out large sums of money , this is erroneous, but arguing with authorities is a dead-end.

    The best thing is to advise you of what is likely to be asked of you and to re-assure you that you are not about to be arrested or anything else dramatic. You are perfectly safe- just try not to lose your copy of the Declaration Form until you leave the country.

    Hello Lori,
    Upon exiting the country, do you have to account for all of the money that you have spent?
    regards....
    Vinny

    Vinny ~ I don't think they are so concerned about the money spent just that you are not trying to bring anything extra out of the country.

    If someone could get a hold of this Currency Declaration Form and get it to me by email it would be great. Thanks.
