Visa for Tanzania – A volunteer trip to Tanzania is ideal for all nature lovers; on the one hand, the natural parks and on the other the wonderful sea. Also, the safaris in Tanzania are among the best in the world and the white beaches of the Zanzibar archipelago never disappoint. And this is precisely the winning combination for a Tanzania tour: Volunteer + Safari + a visit to Zanzibar.
How to obtain a Visa for Tanzania
To enter Tanzania, you need a passport with residual validity of 6 months from the time of entry into the country and a visa.
You can apply for a visa from your country via your local embassy.
You can also do it directly on arrival in Tanzania, at the three main airports: Dar Es Salaam, Zanzibar Kilimanjaro; after filling out the application form, taking photos, and fingerprints, you will pay $50 (or €50) per person in cash or by credit card. Remember that they only accept dollars not older than 2006.
If you fly with scheduled airlines, you will only pay the visa on entry; on the contrary, if you travel with tour operator charters, you will also have to pay the exit tax, only in cash.
Always check with the embassy website if they have made any changes with regard to visas.
