Starting an e-Visa application Tanzania

Everything is done entirely online, you don't have to send anything by mail and you don't have to go anywhere. The "e-Visa" can be requested on this form. The photocopy of the passport, the passport photo and the plane ticket will be sent once the form is completed. The agreement is materialized by the receipt of a travel authorization in electronic form (PDF) that should be printed in color and presented upon arrival in Tanzania.

You can enter Tanzania through one of these 5 places: Julius Nyerere Airport (Dar es Salaam), Kilimanjaro Airport, Abeid Amani Karume Airport (Zanzibar), Namanga border or Tunduma border. You do not need to know anyone in Tanzania to do this. You must be out of the country at the time of application and have a way to leave the country (return air ticket, etc).

Tourism & Volunteering 90 days 1 50 โ‚ฌ 34 โ‚ฌ 84 โ‚ฌ
Business 90 days 1 245 โ‚ฌ 34 โ‚ฌ 279 €

The e-Visa is valid for tourist or business travel (maximum 90 days and 1 entry per person). Travelers must have a passport valid for at least 6 months on the date of arrival in Tanzania. Once issued, you must enter Tanzania with the authorization within 90 days. The validity of the visa will then start from the date of your arrival in the country, not from the date of issue of the permit. We advise you to apply at least 5 days before your arrival in Tanzania.

What you need to know about the Tanzania e-Visa

Located in East Africa, Tanzania, or the United Republic of Tanzania, is a country known for its large wilderness areas still preserved from mass tourism. By visiting Tanzania you will be able to discover the famous "big five": elephants, lions, leopards, buffalos and rhinoceroses. Tanzania is often called the pearl of Africa because of its exceptional biodiversity. If Tanzania leaves you dreaming, apply for your visa online now on our website.

From June to October, enjoy the dry season and temperate climate for your safaris and swimming in Tanzania. On the contrary, avoid the tourist rush by going to Tanzania outside of the summer vacations and the end of the year festivities.

Since 2018, the Tanzanian government has introduced an e-visa that allows you to visit mainland Tanzania and the island of Zanzibar for business travel or private tourism.

As a French, Swiss, Belgian or other eligible national, find out how to obtain a tourism, volunteer or business visa for a stay of up to 90 days in Tanzania.

Travel to Tanzania with an electronic visa as a French national: procedures and deadlines

Whether you are a business traveler or a leisure traveler, preparing for your trip to Tanzania involves obtaining a visa appropriate to the purpose of your stay abroad after purchasing your airline tickets. Before applying for a visa, make sure your passport is valid. Your identity document must be valid for at least 6 months after your arrival date at your destination to obtain an e-visa for Tanzania.

Not only open to French nationals, the e-visa for Tanzania is actually open to more than 100 different nationalities, including Belgian and Swiss nationals.

Entrust your electronic visa application for Tanzania to Visamundi, a French agency specialized in travel documents for individuals and professionals. You just need to provide us with a photocopy of your passport, a passport photo and your return flight tickets from our online form, after having filled in the reason of your stay in Tanzania as well as your arrival and departure dates. If you are traveling to Tanzania for business or humanitarian purposes, a letter of invitation will also be required. We will then take care of the rest of the procedures related to your e-visa application for Tanzania.

With Visamundi, make the choice of simplicity and efficiency. Our team will carefully check the conformity of your documents and will obtain an answer from the authorities concerning your visa application in 5 days on average. Therefore, make your application on our website at least 5 days before your arrival date in Tanzania to organize your departure, including a relatively urgent departure. We also process group applications to facilitate your departure with family, friends or business.

With our online eVisa application process, you do not need to know anyone locally to obtain a visa for Tanzania. However, you must be in a country other than Tanzania when you apply, you must not be in possession of a Tanzanian resident visa and you must have a way to leave the country once you are there, namely a return air ticket. If your situation corresponds to all of these criteria, we invite you to apply for an e-visa with our experienced agency.

Once issued, your eVisa for Tanzania will be valid for a maximum of 90 days from the date of your arrival in the country. Please note that the local authorities may reduce the validity period depending on the information you provide. You will receive the visa in electronic format and will have to print it in color to present it to the competent authorities upon your arrival in Tanzania. However, the residence permit will only be valid for an arrival in Tanzania within 90 days of its issuance, so it is useless, or even counterproductive, to anticipate your e-visa application too much once you have booked your outbound and return flights.

Thanks to the e-visa for Tanzania, prepare your trip online without having to go to the embassy. Simplified compared to a classic visa application, the online process also allows you to obtain a visa in a shorter time. Please note that the e-visa for Tanzania is only valid from 3 airports: Julius Nyerere airport(Dar es Salaam), Kilimanjaro airport and Abeid Amani Karume airport of Kisauni(Zanzibar), and 2 land borders: Namanga and Tunduma. If you arrive by sea or from another border on Tanzanian soil, we invite you to apply for a classic visa at the Tanzanian embassy or at your port of arrival.
