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 with an expiry date of at least 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 the border crossing. TANZANIA VISA AND PASSPORT REQUIREMENTS
There are two ways to get a tourist visa.
Method 1 (recommended). Receiving VISA upon arrival to Tanzania:
A tourist visa will be stamped into your passport by the immigration authorities of Tanzania upon arrival to the country. You may receive a visa on arrival in one of the following border points:
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 valid visa stamp in your passport.
Citizens of the following countries should get a special referred visa in advance in one of the Tanzanian overseas diplomatic missions. Without a visa received in a Tanzanian diplomatic mission, they will be denied entry to the United Republic.
PLEASE NOTE THAT WHILE PROCESSING AN ORDINARY TOURIST VISA TAKES 1-7 WORKING DAYS, GETTING A REFERRED VISA MAY TAKE AS LONG AS 2 MONTHS. MAKE SURE TO PLAN YOUR TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS ACCORDINGLY.
