In 2018, Tanzania started offering people from certain countries the electronic visa system to make it easier for them to apply for a Tanzania volunteer visa online. Volunteering as a Russian citizen requires a special Tanzanian visa.
Traveling abroad is a chance to help people build better lives for themselves and their families. The Tanzania Volunteer e-Visa is designed to make it simple for NGO volunteers to apply for and receive a visa online. It's easier to obtain this via the internet, as you don't have to go directly to the embassy.
