Travel requirements for entering Tanzania


The Science Granting Council annual meetings delegates are requested to organize VISA before arriving in the Country. Whether or not a delegate needs a visa depends on your nationality, purpose and length of stay. There are some countries whose nationals are not required to apply for VISA to enter Tanzania. They will undergo immigration formalities at the entry point upon arrival. The list of such countries is available at http://www.immigration.go.tz/index.php/en/services/visa-information.
There are some countries which their nationals require special clearance from the Commissioner General of Immigration or the Commissioner of Immigration (Zanzibar) before issuance of the Visa.

These countries fall under the Referral Visa Category. Applicants whose nationals fall under this category are not advised to book flight tickets before getting approval for VISA. Please visit: https://eservices.immigration.go.tz/visa/guidelines for more information.

COSTECH is working with the department of immigration to facilitate delegates to obtain VISA on arrival at the Airport. Delegate will be required to provide the following documents at the Immigration desk in the airport:

  • Visa application form duly filled-in;
  • A passport or Travel Document which is valid for not less than six months;
  • 2 passport size photographs;
  • Supporting document from the local organiser
  • Respective visa Fee;
  • Yellow fever card (especially for delegates from countries with risks of yellow fever transmission, please
