For your visit in Tanzania, you must meet certain entry requirements before being allowed into the country. Some nationals are exempted from this requirement when entering the country and staying for three months or less. Exempt nationals include those from Botswana, Gambia, Ghana, Hong Kong, Kenya, Leshoto, Malawi, Malaysia, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. For citizens of the United States, Australia, United Kingdom, all mainland European nations and countries not exempted above are required to have visas. Citizens of certain countries require a referred visa issued prior to arrival. These include Afghanistan, Abkhazia, Azerbaijan, Bangladesh, Chad, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzten, Lebanon, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Palestine Refugees, stateless individuals, Senegal, Somalia, Sierra Leone, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Sri Lanka. You should obtain your visa prior to departing your home country as this will ensure that you are able to begin your safari or travels without delay in case of any passport hitches. To apply for a visa, contact the Tanzania consulate in your country. Many consulates also have the forms and instructions on their websites. Your passport must be valid for a minimum of six months from the travel date of your arrival and departure out of Tanzania.

If you are short of time, you are be able to obtain a single-entry tourist or business visa upon arrival at one of the entry points, although it is recommended that you obtain your visa prior to departing your home country. To obtain a visa upon arrival in-country, you must meet all standard immigration requirements before a visa will be granted to you. Cash US Dollar payments are only accepted as payment for your entry visa on arrival. Multiple-entry visas are not granted upon arrival at points of entry. If you plan to work or volunteer while in Tanzania, you will need a valid work permit which can be obtained through your employer or volunteer organization. If you stay in Tanzania beyond the valid period of your visa or permit, you are subject to being arrested, detained and fined prior to being deported. The fee for a single or multiple entry visa for a US citizen is USD $100, and for other non-exempted nationals, the fee is USD $50. Visas costs must pay by cash, or money order if applying via a Tanzanian consulate. Personal checks and credit cards are not accepted as payment. You do not need a separate visa for visiting Zanzibar Island; though, the same above Tanzania visa requirements applies for Zanzibar.
