US nationals that have submitted a completed online application for a Tanzania eVisa can expect to receive updates on the status of their application via email.
Typically, it can take up to 3 business days for an application to be thoroughly processed. Travelers from the United States of America who have been approved for the Tanzanian eVisa, receive their approved application notification letter and visa grant notice securely via email.
Citizens of the USA are required to take a printed copy of both the approved application notification letter and the visa grant notice letter with them when they travel to gain expedited entry into the country upon arrival. They will also be required to complete and submit a Tanzania Entry Arrival declaration form upon arrival at a Tanzanian border.
The Tanzania eVisa allows travelers from the US to enter Tanzania and Zanzibar only through select ports of entry:
- Julius Nyere International Airport
- Kilimanjaro International Airport
- Abeid Amani Karume International Airport
- Namanga Border Crossing
- Tunduma Border Crossing
Visitors from the US can also arrive in Tanzania and Zanzibar by sea.
