Passports and Visas

Most visitors require a visa to enter Tanzania. You can buy one on arrival—at the time of writing it is $50, and two passport pictures (though you might not need them). However, if possible, get your visa ahead of time to avoid long lines and headaches. Visas are valid for three months and allow multiple entries. Passports must be valid for six months after your planned departure date from Tanzania. You will need a valid yellow fever certificate to enter and exit Tanzania.
