Apply for your Tanzania visa through a smooth & hassle-free process!

Tanzania began using the Tanzania eVisa system in November 2018 to decrease face-to-face interaction time between international visitors and immigration officials. All individuals interested in visiting Tanzania only need to complete a Tanzania visa application form and the documents will be sent to your email.

For most nationalities, the Tanzania eVisa is a single-entry visa for a maximum stay of 30 days and is valid for 90 days from the date of arrival. The Tanzania online visa is available to US passport holders and allows multiple entries, stays of up to 90 days within every 180 days, and one-year validity from date of arrival.

Anyone who is eligible for a Tanzania eVisa may apply through the straightforward Tanzania eVisa application form, which only takes minutes to fill out. In addition, applicants must state the reason for their trip and give an anticipated date of arrival in Tanzania.
