How to get Safari Visa in Tanzania.
If you are considering visiting Tanzania, you can apply for your Tanzania Visa upon arrival in the country or through the Tanzanian Embassy in your home country, before your departure. Though you may apply for a tourist visa upon arrival in Tanzania, no guarantee exists that your visa will be approved. As a result, the Tanzanian Embassy highly recommends that you apply for and obtain your visa before arriving in Tanzania.
Prior departure is good to be familiar with visas and customs in Tanzania. US, Canada, UK, Australia and EU nationals are required to obtain visa to enter Tanzania. The easiest and most convenient way to get visa for Tanzania is on arrival, either on airports or on entry points to the country.
Process for getting Tanzanian visa on arrival is pretty straight forward but be prepared on long line and slow immigration staff. After filling in application form, staff collects the passports, forms and money. The rest is waiting.
Types and cost: Single-entry tourist visa: US$50 on arrival (the exception is US citizens for whom a single-entry visa is US$100) or £40 in advance. Multiple-entry business visa: £80 (six months) or £100 (12 months).
Visas can be obtained at any Diplomatic or Consulate Mission of the United Republic of Tanzania abroad, normally within one business day. Visitors are urged to do so to avoid any possible inconvenience at point of entry in Tanzania.
How to get safari visa in Tanzania – Overview
The granting of a Tanzanian Visa is, in effect, only a form of pre-entry clearance. It does not guarantee permission to enter Tanzania. The Immigration Officer reserves the right to grant or deny admission. Visa holders are subject to normal Immigration control at the port of entry. They should therefore carry with them, for possible presentation to Immigration officers, the documents submitted with their applications.
It is possible, however, to obtain a tourist’s visa for a single entry at any one of the following four main entry points to Tanzania, subject to the fulfillment of all immigration and health requirements:
- Dar es Salaam International Airport
- Zanzibar International Airport
- Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA)
- Namanga Entry Point (Tanzania-Kenya boarder point)
