“It was so exiting watching thousands of wildebeest crossing the serengeti, it was an experience of its own, never seen such a thing before, just in Tanzania, just with Ipam Safaris.”

Visas and Passport

 Typically Tanzanian tourist visas are valid for 6 months from the date of issue. So, while planning ahead for visas is a good thing, make sure the visa is still valid for the length of time you plan to travel in Tanzania. Application details and forms can be found on Tanzanian Embassy web sites. Tanzanian embassies issue single ($50) and double ($100) entry visas (handy if you're planning to cross over to Kenya or Malawi for a few days). They do not issue visas for more than two entries.You can obtain a visa at all airports in Tanzania as well as at the border crossings, but it is advised to get a visa ahead of time. Every traveler should also carry their passport at all times and the passports must be valid for 6 months from date of entry

Tourists from the following countries do not require a visa for entry to Tanzania:

For stay up to 90 days and nationals of;

  • Hong Kong (Special Administrative Region (SAR) passport)
  • Kenya, Macao (Special Administrative Region passport)
  • Rwanda & Uganda

There is now also a legal requirement that all visitors to Tanzania provide both biometric fingerprints and photographs on arrival and departure from the country so do be prepared to comply with that policy.

Entry requirements may change from time to time and should be checked with the High Commission of Tanzania for the latest requirements well in advance of your planned departure date.
