New rules on visas issued upon arrival in Tanzania with immediate effect
Please note that since August 15, 2019, Kilimanjaro Airport has changed the visa process upon arrival.
What was a fairly simple and easy process has taken longer. If you arrive at Kilimanjaro Airport (JRO) without a visa, you will now have to follow the following procedure:
- Queue for a government control number
- Queue to pay your visa
- Queue for immigration to check and issue the visa
It is highly recommended to apply for your Tanzanian visa online at www.immigration.go.tz
The online process requires more information than a visa upon arrival, the online visa is issued within 2 to 3 weeks and costs approximately US $ 50.
The waiting time for obtaining a visa at the airport has greatly lengthened and can reach more than two waiting hours. In order for you to avoid going through this process, plan in advance for obtaining your visa online
