Visas to Tanzania

Travellers to Tanzania require a valid Visa each time they enter the Republic.

Visas can be obtained at any Diplomatic or Consulate Mission of the United Republic of Tanzania abroad, normally within one business day. Visitors are urged to do so to avoid any possible inconvenience at point of entry in Tanzania.

It is possible, however, to obtain a tourist's visa for a single entry at any one of the following four main entry points to Tanzania, subject to the fulfilment of all immigration and health requirements:

  •     Dar es Salaam International Airport
  •     Zanzibar International Airport
  •     Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA)
  •     Namanga Entry Point (Tanzania-Kenya boarder point)

(This facility is generally for those who could not apply for a visa from a Tanzania Mission abroad) For all other entry points in Tanzania, visitors must hold valid visa prior to arrival.
