NOTE: Possession of a visa for the United Republic of Tanzania does not provide an automatic right of entry for the holder into the country. The immigration officers at the port of entry may refuse entry to any person if they think that such a person is unable to fulfill the immigration requirements or that such a person’s presence in the United Republic of Tanzania would be contrary to national interests or security.
- Travelers must have their passport with at least 6 months of validity from the date of arrival and have 1 page available for the visa stamp.
- The Tanzania visa is only available to travelers whose point of entry into the country is one of the following: Julius Nyerere International Airport (JNIA), Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA), Abeid Amani Karume International Airport (AAKIA), Namanga land border or Tunduma land border.
IMPORTANT: If you are applying for a single entry Tanzania eVisa, the purpose of your trip must be one of the following: Visit, Tourism, Leisure, Holiday, Attending Conference, Humanitarian and Charity Activities, Family Visit, or Health Treatment; and departure must occur no more than 90 days after arrival. American citizens are not entitled to apply for a single entry visa, and must, therefore, apply for a multiple entry visa. American citizens going on a leisure trip can only apply for Multiple Entry Tanzania eVisas, as stated by this country’s authorities.
The Tanzania Multiple Entry visa will be valid for 1 year after arrival, for stays of up to 90 days Per Entry.
