The Tanzania eVisa is an online visa, launched in 2018, which allows citizens from eligible countries to travel to and within Tanzania and Zanzibar.
The Tanzania electronic visa is valid for tourism and leisure purposes, such as a holiday in Tanzania or Zanzibar, or to visit family or friends.
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 approval.
For U.S. 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 approval.
Eligible applicants may apply through a 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.
