Tanzania Business Visa

To apply prior to landing in Tanzania you will need to present your passport, not a photocopy of your passport, ensure that it is signed and that the passport will still be valid in at least six months’ time. You will also need to ensure that there are at least two blank pages which can be used for your visa be stamped onto. In addition, you will also have to supply two passport sized photographs that were taken of yourself within the last three months.
You will also need to fully complete a visa application form, please ensure that there are no missing or incomplete sections, if something does not apply to you please select or insert Not Applicable or None rather than leaving it blank. Finally, because this is for a Business Visa you will need to supply an official letter from the company you will be liaising with, the letter should state the purpose of your visit.

Visas are required for U.S. citizens traveling to Tanzania. The U.S. Embassy recommends that U.S. citizens obtain visas before traveling to Tanzania, but visas are also available at ports of entry upon arrival.
A passport valid for a minimum of six months beyond visa issuance and/or date of entry, and at least one blank visa page is required. Visitors who enter on visas must present a roundtrip ticket and demonstrate they have sufficient funds for their stay.
Be prepared to show your passport and explain your visa status when entering or departing Zanzibar or when traveling around the mainland.
Volunteer activity – even if the traveler is paying for the opportunity – is prohibited on a tourist visa. If you plan to engage in business or commercial transactions in Tanzania, please consult with the Embassy of Tanzania in Washington, D.C. before applying for a visa.
Visit the Embassy of Tanzania website for the most current visa information. Read the page on visas and immigration to ensure you will have the correct status during your visit to Tanzania.
Yellow fever vaccination is required for all travelers arriving from, or having transited through, yellow fever endemic countries. Direct arrivals from non-endemic countries, including all countries in Europe and North America, are not required to show the certificate.
Although the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that a yellow fever vaccine is only required if traveling from a yellow fever endemic country, there are reports that unless a traveler has a medical exemption letter from a physician, some immigration officials require evidence of the vaccine for entry in Tanzania; particularly entry via Zanzibar. Travelers with neither the shot nor an exemption letter are usually allowed entry and directed to a health officer to obtain the vaccine. The CDC notes that travelers staying for an extended time or those who will be heavily exposed to mosquitoes consider obtaining the vaccination before visiting Tanzania.
If a public official attempts to solicit the payment of a fine from you, ask to travel to the nearest police station to file a report regarding the incident. Obtain a receipt and a written report of any such transactions. If your passport is seized, ask for a receipt, note the officer’s name, location, and contact details and report it immediately to the U.S. Embassy.
