Can I simultaneously declare and assign a variable in VBA?

There is no shorthand in VBA unfortunately, The closest you will get is a purely visual thing using the : continuation character if you want it on one line for readability;

Dim clientToTest As String:  clientToTest = clientsToTest(i)
Dim clientString As Variant: clientString = Split(clientToTest)

Hint (summary of other answers/comments): Works with objects too (Excel 2010):

Dim ws  As Worksheet: Set ws = ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1")
Dim ws2 As New Worksheet: ws2.Name = "test"
