ZRA takes over collection of road toll, road service licence fees at Kazungula, Chirundu border posts


The Zambia Revenue Authority (ZRA) has taken over operations to collect Road Toll and Road Service Licence fees at Kazungula and Chirundu One-Stop-Border-Posts.

ZRA Corporate Communications Manager, Oliver Nzala, stated that this was effective February 1, 2024.

Nzala confirmed the development in a statement issued in Lusaka on Wednesday.

He said the move followed government’s action to reduce from 15 to six, the number of agencies operating at Kazungula and Chirundu border posts.

“This is in order to ensure smooth trade facilitation and enhanced service delivery,” Nzala added.

He said the take over would be implemented at Kazungula and Chirundu One-Stop-Border-Posts before the action was rolled out to other border facilities in the country.

Nzala highlighted that until January, 31, 2024, operations to collect Road Toll fees and Road Service Licence Fees were a responsibility of the Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA).

“ZRA will now collect the Road Toll and Road Service Licence Fees at the border facilities while in-land collections of the fees and enforcement will continue to be operated by the respective agencies,” he stated.

Nzala assured that the Authority remained committed to enhancing efficiency in the clearing of both passengers and cargo at border facilities.
