Zambia also uses Socket Type C, which is used in Belarus. If using an appliance that has a Type C Plug in the Type C Sockets of Zambia, you will not need an adaptor.

Considerations

Voltage

The voltages found in Belarus (220V) and Zambia (230V) are not exactly the same, but the difference is tolerable, so you should not need a transformer.

Good to know

Frequency of Electrical Current

The frequency found in Belarus and Zambia is exactly the same (50Hz). Timing devices and appliances that use motors will function as expected under this frequency.
