How to Expedite a Tanzanian Visa

Going to Tanzania could be a trip of a lifetime. So, before you start making plans here is some information that will help you get into the country.

Like many countries, to enter Tanzania you must have a valid passport and a visa. A valid passport is one with six or more months validity. If your document is near expiration, you will not be given a visa. Also, your passport must have at least two blank pages. The pages will be used for the visa.

Tanzanian Visa Requirements

Tourist Visa

When you apply at a consulate or embassy, you must provide the documents required. Without these papers, your application will get denied. So, submit:

  • Your valid passport with at least two blank pages
  • Completed visa application
  • One recent passport size photo
  • Trip itinerary
  • Hotel reservation
  • Visa fee

Business Visa

You should provide these documents for a business visa:

  • Your valid passport with at least two blank pages
  • Completed visa application
  • One recent passport size photo
  • Trip itinerary
  • Business letter

The business letter should be addressed to the Embassy of Tanzania and include;

  • the applicant title
  • type of business he/she will conduct in Tanzania
  • type of visa you will apply for and the length of the visa
  • how long you plan to remain in Tanzania
  • proof of funds for the trip

Where to Apply in the U.S.

Once you have all the requirements, you can apply in person or by mail. You can also use a private expeditor if you need a visa in a rush. You will pay the extra cost of the service and the visa fees.
