The Tanzanian visa process. Tips and recommendations.

For entry into the territory of the United Republic of Tanzania for tourism purposes it is necessary to have a valid foreign passport which should not exceed six more months at the moment of crossing the border of the republic. The passport must have two blank pages for seals and stamps on border crossing.
For citizens of  European Union countries and USA there are two ways to get a tourist visa.


The method 1. Receiving VISA upon arrival to Tanzania:

  • Kilimanjaro International Airport
  • Zanzibar International Airport
  • Dar es Salaam International Airport
  • The border crossings between Kenya and Tanzania (Namanga / Taveta)

Remember that arriving on the territory of Tanzania through other border crossings, you should have a visa stamp.

Important information for citizens of Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, Kirghizia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan:  due to the lack of bilateral agreements between these states, it is necessary to receive a special visa. To do this, you should contact the nearest embassy of the United Republic at a minimum two months before the planned journey. You can find embassies address’ here

Citizens of epidemiological dangerous regions also ought to have an international vaccination certificate against yellow fever.
The government of Tanzanian Republic requires the vaccination certificate, not because of yellow fever in the country, but because it is under constant threat of infection from disadvantaged neighboring countries. In the Zanzibar airport there are permanent controls of availability of vaccination certificate against yellow fever and in even though this vaccination is optional, our company recommends to do it. It can be done in the majority of modern cities of  EU, USA.
