Please be aware that 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
• Queue to pay for this at the bank
• Queue for Immigration to check and issue the visa
We would really appreciate your help in letting your guests know about this change, and strongly recommending that those that still have time before they travel apply for their Tanzania visa online at www.immigration.go.tz. The online process asks for more information than a visa on arrival, and are issued within 2 – 3 weeks.
The changes at Kilimanjaro has meant that the visa on arrival process can take in excess of two hours, and we’d really prefer that your guests did not have to go through that. We’ve been reassured that measures are being put in place to make this quicker, but until that happens we feel that the above recommendation is our best bet. borrowed this from other group, thought I should share so that you share with your clients. “
