After submitting the Tanzania eVisa application, the Tanzanian government evaluates the profile and request received. The evaluation takes from 1 to 7 days. Travelers can check the status of their eVisa on the Tanzanian government’s website, using the email they registered with.
Once approved, UK applicants will receive their eVisa Grant Notice attached as a PDF and notification letter securely via email. Both of these documents are necessary for entry into Tanzania and Zanzibar.
UK eVisa holders will need to take a printed copy of each document when they travel to Tanzania and Zanzibar and present them to Tanzanian Border control officials upon arrival. They will also be required to complete and submit a Tanzania Entry Arrival declaration form along with these documents.
