Tanzania – New visa process at Kilimanjaro Airport

Please be aware that with immediate effect Kilimanjaro airport has changed the process of issueing visas on arrival.

Clients arriving in Kilimanjaro without a visa now need to complete the following process:

• Queue for a Government Control Number
• Queue to pay for this at the bank
• Queue for Immigration to check and issue the visa

Please let your guests know about this change, and strongly recommend that those that still have time before they travel apply for their Tanzania visa online at www.immigration.go.tz. The online process asks for more information than a visa on arrival, and are issued within 2 – 3 weeks. The changes at Kilimanjaro has meant that the visa on arrival process can take in excess of two hours, and would really prefer that your guests did not have to go through that. Measures are being put in place to make this quicker, but until that happens the above recommendation is best.

Important: Please also be reminded that it is in force a ban on importing and using plastic bags throughout the country. Please notify all customers arriving in the country of this ban:
