The Tanzania eVisa is an online visa, launched in 2018, which allows citizens from eligible countries to travel to and within Tanzania (including Zanzibar).
The Tanzania electronic visa is valid for tourism and leisure purposes, such as a holiday in mainland Tanzania or Zanzibar, or to visit family or friends.
Eligible travelers must apply for a Tanzania tourist visa online before visiting the country.
It is quick and easy to obtain the eVisa. The streamlined online application can be completed from home, rather than going all the way to a diplomatic mission or embassy.
The Government of Tanzania implemented the eVisa Tanzania in order to simplify the application process for a Tanzania tourist visa for eligible citizens.
For the majority of eligible nationalities, the Tanzania tourist eVisa is available as a single-entry visa for a stay of up to 30 days and is valid for 90 days from the date of arrival.
For US citizens, the Tanzania online visa is valid for multiple entries, allows stays of up to 90 days within every 180 days, and is valid for one year from the date of arrival.
Eligible applicants may apply through the simple Tanzania eVisa application form, which only takes minutes to complete with personal and passport information. Applicants are also required to indicate the reason for traveling and provide the intended date of entry to Tanzania.
Those wishing to visit Tanzania for purposes other than tourism or leisure are required to contact the nearest Tanzanian Embassy or Consulate.
