Tanzanian & Kenyan Visa Information

Two Options for acquiring a Tanzania Visa

1. E-Visa Online Application Process

(Please provide 10 business days for your e-visa to be processed and approved. Visa applicants are advised to make their applications through the Official Tanzania Immigration website https://visa.immigration.go.tz/ ONLY and NOT through any other links. Please use the GOOGLE CHROME web browser to complete your online application on a desktop or laptop computer (not a phone or tablet). Other browsers do not work well.

The E-Visa process will allow you to fast track your visa procurement upon arrival at select points of entry:

  • Dar es Salaam Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR);
  • Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO);
  • Zanzibar Abeid Amani Karume International Airport (ZNZ);
  • Mwanza International Airport (MWZ)
  • Namanga border with Kenya;
  • Tunduma border with Malawi.

The E-Visa  is now available for guests flying into Tanzania via Mwanza (MWZ) from Kigali (KGL), Rwanda.

2. Obtaining your Tanzania Visa upon arrival

It is still possible to obtain your Tanzania visa upon arrival without going through the E-Visa process. Please make sure you have $100 USD (US Citizens for multiple entry visa – required minimum) or $50 USD (non-US Citizens for single entry visas, $100 USD for multiple entry) in cash. Application forms are available at the ports of entry or border crossings. Please note that this method of obtaining a visa has multiple steps.


Please Read – Special Notes!

As of November 2019 the Tanzania Embassies, High Commissions and UN Mission offices no longer provide Visa Services. There are two ways to obtain a visa to Tanzania: 1) online or 2) upon arrival.

Please make sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months (from the date of your departure from Tanzania. Please review all visa regulations well in advance of your arrival.). The Tanzanian Visa that will be affixed into your passport takes up an entire page of your passport. Please ensure you have sufficient pages remaining in your passport prior to travel (2 blank pages per country on your itinerary).
