Apply for a visa in Tanzania
There is a special department for visa applications at the airport in Tanzania. An application does take some doing because you have to connect in three different rows:
- In the first row, you request a so-called government control number
- You pay in the second row and receive a receipt
- The third row is for the visa issuance
How long the application takes depends on how busy the airport is. It is advisable to get off the plane quickly and submit the application immediately. Keep a pen handy! Those who are quick will spend about twenty minutes with the application. But especially in high season, it can take longer than an hour.
For both ways, the passport must be valid for at least six months upon return from Tanzania. In addition, children traveling with one parent require a statement in English in which the other parent authorizes the trip. This and more are also stated in the preparatory travel information that we send our customers after confirmation of the trip.
