Australian nationals will be required to provide personal and passport details while filling out the Tanzania eVisa application. Care must be taken to ensure that the information entered is accurate and matches the details shown on the traveler’s passport.
Erroneous or missing information can result in processing delays and, in some cases, a denial of the visa. Therefore, Australian applicants are encouraged to review the information they have entered on the Tanzania eVisa application for accuracy before finally submitting their information for review.
After submitting a Tanzania tourist visa application, it is evaluated by the Tanzania government. This takes between 1 and 7 days.
Nevertheless, Australian applicants are encouraged to begin the Tanzanian eVisa process at least 6 days before their intended date of arrival in Tanzania to account for any processing delays that could occur.
Australian applicants can also check the status of their pending eVisa status via email notifications sent to the account provided in the application.
There is a processing fee associated with the online tourist visa that they will have to pay using a credit or debit card to conclude the process. We recommend that applicants check that the card has sufficient funds to cover the visa processing fee and has been previously authorized for online transactions.
Australians traveling to Tanzania for purposes other than tourism or who plan to stay for longer than 30 days should apply for a standard consular visa. They are advised to schedule an appointment at the Tanzanian Consulate in Melbourne or Perth for further details.
