See More Details

Italians can travel to Tanzania with an online visa. The Tanzania government introduced the eVisa for Tanzania in 2018 to simplify the process to obtain a valid travel permit for international travelers. Italian tourists can obtain this electronic visa from the comfort of their homes without needing to schedule an appointment at an embassy.

Main Features of the Tanzania eVisa for Italian Travelers

The Tanzanian visa policies define the main features the eVisa offers to Italian visitors. The eVisa for Tanzania is a perfect option for Italian tourists visiting Tanzania or the Zanzibar Islands for leisure and relaxation. It allows them a single-entry and a stay of up to 30 days in the country. Once approved and received, Italian travelers have up to 90 days to enter Tanzania.

This online visa meets most requirements foreign tourists usually need when visiting Tanzania for recreational purposes. If Italian nationals are planning to relocate for a more stable period of time or need to visit the country for longer than a month, we recommend they visit the Tanzanian embassy in Rome or Consulate in Milano for further visa options.

Tanzania eVisa Requirements for Italian Citizens

International travelers are advised to read through the visa requirements for Italian passport holders before they initiate their eVisa request. The basic requirements Italians must meet to apply for the eVisa to enter Tanzania include the following:

  • Have a passport with a minimum of 6 months validity on their arrival in Tanzania
  • Confirm the passport contains at least one blank page for entry and exit stamps
  • Upload 2 recent passport-style photos to the device they will use for their application
  • Provide their travel plans
  • Have a bank card to pay the eVisa fee
  • Use a frequently accessed email account

Italian applicants should note the Tanzanian eVisa is a unique travel permit that will be linked to their passport once approved. It cannot be transferred to a second passport. Therefore, if their passport is set to expire soon, we recommend renewing it before they begin their application. They should also ensure it includes at least one blank page for government officials to provide entry and exit stamps.

Italians must provide 2 recent and good quality passport-style pictures of themselves. They should upload them digitally to the device (mobile phone, PC, or tablet) they will use later for their application.

We recommend Italian tourists purchase or pre-book their transportation tickets and accommodation before their eVisa request since they will be required to share this information during their application. They must also confirm the bank card they will use to pay the eVisa fee has been previously authorized for online payments.

Lastly, it is convenient for Italian travelers to use an email address they access regularly. All the communications regarding their petition will be done by email only, so it is best to have this information at hand.

Application Form for the Tanzania eVisa for Italian Citizens

Once Italian tourists confirm they meet the requirements for the eVisa, they can begin the application form. It is an online questionnaire with simple and straightforward questions that Italian citizens can usually answer in 15 to 20 minutes. Some of the most common questions will include their personal information and passport details, such as the following:

  • Full name
  • Date of birth
  • Place of birth
  • Citizenship
  • Email address
  • Residential address
  • Passport number
  • Passport issue date
  • Passport expiry date
  • Proof of accommodation
  • Entry and exit dates

Italian citizens planning a group visit such as a family holiday with underage travelers must note that each applicant can include up to 3 minors in their eVisa request. They do not need to submit separate applications for each of their dependents.

Italian travelers must check their answers before submitting the eVisa form. Once delivered, it cannot be altered, and any mistake or gaps in information could delay their approval or even lead to a rejection.

Italians conclude the Tanzanian eVisa application process by paying the processing fee. Most international debit and credit cards are accepted, and the payment is carried out by a secure online system.

How Long Will it Take to Receive the Tanzania eVisa for Italians?

Once Italian travelers have submitted their Tanzania eVisa request, their petition is evaluated, and within 3 business days, they will receive a resolution. If all the answers they provided are correct and they meet the eVisa requirements, they will receive a confirmation email with an Approved Visa Grant Notice and a Visa Application Notification Letter. Upon receipt, we recommend they print out a copy of each and store them next to their travel documents.

Italian Tourists Traveling to Tanzania with the eVisa

Italian travelers can reach Tanzania with the approved eVisas. They should check they will use one of the following ports of entry, which are compatible with the eVisa:

  • Julius Nyerere International Airport
  • Kilimanjaro International Airport
  • Abeid Amani Karume International Airport
  • Namanga Border Crossing
  • Tunduma Border Crossing

Some seaports in the Zanzibar islands also authorize entries with the eVisa. We advise Italian tourists to consult which ones allow the eVisa if their holiday includes arriving by ship.

Upon reaching any of these entry ports, Italian visitors should head straight to the immigration desks compatible with the eVisa. They will be required to submit their passport and printed copies of their granted eVisa and confirmation letter for inspection before being allowed to enter the country.

Italian citizens need to abide by the allowed 30 days for their visit. Both their entry and departure must comply with the eVisa’s validity of 90 days. On the rare occasion that they might need to prolong their stay, they can request an eVisa extension at the Immigration Office in Dar es Salaam.

Visas on arrival in Tanzania for Italian citizens

Italians are eligible to obtain a visa on arrival once they reach Tanzania. This option is adequate if they have not had the chance to apply beforehand. Nevertheless, we must remind them that the visa on arrival sometimes entails long queues at passport controls, sometimes after long intercontinental flights, and paying the visa fees in cash. Italian tourists prefer the much more comfortable and time-saving eVisa for their holidays in Tanzania.
