Visa Requirements

All British passport holders need a visa to travel to Tanzania and you should obtain one prior to travelling from your nearest Tanzanian Embassy. It is possible to obtain a tourist visa for a single entry at the main ports of entry to Tanzania but this is subject to the fulfilment of all immigration requirements. If you need a multiple entry visa arrange this through a Tanzanian diplomatic mission before your arrival in Tanzania. Otherwise you will have to buy a single entry visa each time you enter the country.

Passport Validity

You must hold a valid passport and visa to enter Tanzania. Your passport must be valid for the proposed duration of your stay. No additional period of validity beyond this is required. However, it is always sensible to have a short period of extra validity on your passport in case of any unforeseen delays to your departure.

In order to apply for a visa your passport must have validity of not less than six months.

Yellow Fever 

Travellers from non-endemic countries travelling to Tanzania do not require a Yellow Fever Certificate.  Please note, however, that travellers from non-endemic countries that travel through an endemic country are subject to yellow fever vaccination only if they stay outside the Airport or have a long connection up to twelve hours.

As some countries list Tanzania as a Yellow Fever endemic country you may also be asked for a certificate after departing Tanzania and arriving at other destinations.

Travelling with children

For information on entry requirements contact Tanzanian High Commission in London.
