Tanzania Annular Eclipse: Basic Information

Around 75,000 British nationals visit Tanzania every year. Most visits are trouble-free however it is your sole responsibility to check for travel advice and safety, visa entry and vaccinations. Please speak with us if you are unsure about the visa requirements for your travel destination, but you are solely responsible for complying with passport and visa requirements

Entry requirements

Visas

All British passport holders need a tourist or business visa to enter Tanzania. You should get one from the Tanzanian High Commission before you travel. It is possible to get a tourist or business visa for a single entry on arrival at main ports of entry to Tanzania, but this is subject to the fulfilment of all immigration requirements. You won’t be able to get a multiple entry visa on arrival. 

Passport validity

Your passport should be valid for a minimum period of 6 months from the date of your visa application.
The Tanzanian authorities have confirmed they will accept British passports extended by 12 months by British Embassies and Consulates.

UK Emergency Travel Documents

UK Emergency Travel Documents, with a minimum of six months’ validity, are accepted for entry, airside transit and exit from Tanzania.

Yellow fever vaccination

Yellow fever vaccination is required for travellers who are arriving from, or have transited through, countries with risk of yellow fever transmission.

Money

The Tanzanian Shilling is the official currency of Tanzania, but $US are also widely accepted. Dollar notes printed before 2003 are usually not accepted. You can exchange money at many authorised dealers, banks and bureaux de change. Get a receipt after each transaction.

Most banks in major cities have ATMs, but they are not always reliable and sometimes break down or run out of money. To minimise the risk of card cloning, only use ATMs located within the bank. Travellers cheques are not widely accepted.
