Most of the tourists coming to climb Kilimanjaro or go on safari require a visa to enter Tanzania. To makes things easier, the Tanzanian Government launched
the “e-Immigration” program which provides the e-Visa and e-Permits emission and it unifies in a unique document the Residence and the Work Permits.
The new e-immigration means it will be possible to apply, pay and obtain the e-Visa and e-Permits directly online.
It is now possible to request Visa and Permits by electronic means or through the classic channels.
The e-Visa service is already active and accessible at the following address https://eservices.immigration.go.tz/visa.
Through the electronic visa procedure, an online request, this will be reviewed and accepted or rejected after 48 hours,
Applicants will be notified through their e-mails whether their applications have been accepted or rejected. They may also TRACK their application statuses through the online system. Applicants may as well be required to visit the nearest Tanzanian Embassies or Consular Offices for interviews.
In the case of a positive result, a document containing a bar code to be presented at the point of entry of the country will be sent to the applicant (Visa Grant Notice).
