With immediate effect, Kilimanjaro airport has changed the process of issuing visas on arrival. Clients arriving in Kilimanjaro without a visa now need to complete the following process:

  • Queue for a Government Control Number
  • Pay for it at the bank
  • Immigration will then check and issue the visa

The changes mean that the visa on arrival process can take in excess of two hours.

However, those travelling to Tanzania can apply for their visa online here. The online process asks for more information than the visa on arrival and will be issued within two to three weeks.
