What is the Tanzania Transit eVisa?

A Tanzanian transit visa is a valid visa that allows you to cross the country from one point of entry to another destination. The purpose of this document is to allow tourists to enter Tanzania to simply pass through without visiting.

This Tanzania visa is issued only to persons with a round-trip ticket, sufficient funds for the trip, and an entry visa for the destination country or other documents to secure travel.

This document is for travelers passing through Tanzania on their way to another destination and who wish to leave the airport for a maximum of 7 days. This is not a tourist visa, a Tanzania referral visa, or a business visa.
