Tanzania initiated the visa program in 2018 in certain countries to promote the issuance of a volunteer Tanzania visa. Syria is one of those countries.
Going abroad is a chance to help people build better lives for themselves. The Tanzania Volunteer e-Visa program is designed to make it easy for NGO volunteers to apply for and receive a visa online. It's easier to get your visa via the internet because you don't have to go to the embassy or consulate in person.
