Tanzania is one of the top ten visas we process. Since it’s one we do often, we get a lot of questions regarding how the process works, and specific questions pertaining to Tanzania visas.  Here are some of the most common, see how many you already knew.

The form asked for the type of visa I am applying for to travel to Tanzania, what does that mean?
There are two types of travel visas and which one you choose depends on the nature of your travel to Tanzania. If you’re going for business, obviously choose a business-class visa for entry to the country. If you are going for tourism purposes, there’s your visa type.

Where do I find the Tanzania visa application online?
You will need to submit only one copy with your order for a visa. We have a link on our site located here.

How many passport photos will I need to submit with my Tanzania visa application?
You will need to submit two photos. If you want to take your own, we have a handy post on how to take your own passport photo with the requirements.

Do I have to include my current passport in my application for a Tanzania travel visa?
Yes, you will need to include your physical passport with 6 months validity beyond trip completion and one blank visa page.
