Tanzania: documents needed for entry

Citizens of the UK, the US, Canada, Australia, and most countries in the EU, need a tourist visa to enter 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.

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.

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 beforehand. In order to get a visa you have to have proof that you plan to leave Tanzania within 3 months of your arrival. So, here are some documents you might want to prepare when obtaining the visa:

• U.S. Passport (must be valid at least 6 months beyond arrival date)
• 1 Visa Application Form, fully completed and signed
• 2 Passport-type photographs
• Copy of recent Bank Statement
• Vaccinations - International Certificate of Vaccination for Yellow Fever recommended

As with all visa matters, contact your local Tanzanian Embassy for the latest information.

Make sure you make an appointment with Passport Health to talk to a travel medicine specialist about the proper vaccinations to keep you healthy on your trip and get your ICV booklet.
