Types of Tanzania visa for Jordanian citizens
Getting the visa approval is quite straightforward. All you need is to meet some Tanzania visa requirements and fill out the application form. Once approved, you’ll receive the online visa in your email inbox.
However, it’s essential to apply for the Tanzania visa according to your travel purpose. The Tanzania visa policy may differ for a tourist visa, volunteer e-Visa, or transit visa. If you need another type of visa, such as a business visa or spousal visa, we advise you to contact your nearest Tanzania embassy.
All these visas offer single entries. You should consult the Tanzania embassy for further information if you need a multiple-entry visa. Check the details of each travel document below to prepare for your trip to the United Republic of Tanzania.
Tanzania Tourist Visa (e-Visa)
