How to Get your Visa?
Tanzania Visas are requires for all people entering Tanzania. You can get Tanzania VISA in your home country if you are able to locate the Tanzania Embassy (high commission) office but if you cannot find the Visa in your country you will get on arrival day at the airport in Tanzania. At the airport there are two lines, the one for people with VISA and other for people needing VISA. There
is no any complications to obtain the visa at the airport, you just pay and go, you will have to pay in cash $100.00 being Canada and US citizens or $50 None Canada and Us citizens. Tanzania Visas.
The direct flight into Kilimanjaro airport (JRO) is preferred instead of flying to Nairobi where you will pay for unnecessary Visa to enter Kenya or Dar es Salaam where you will have to connect a flight to Kilimanjaro airport which is near to Mount Kilimanjaro and safari parks. However, if you fly into Nairobi or Dar es Salaam, the flight and public coaches are possible, we can also arrange private transport for you if you arrive in Nairobi. Tanzania Visas. Tanzania Visas.
Getting to Tanzania. Tanzania Visas.
Tanzania has three international airports, Kilimanjaro International Airport ( KIA), Dar Es Salaam International Airport (DAR) and Zanzibar international airport (ZNZ)
For example: Once a day one direct flight operated by KLM (Royal Dutch Airlines) depart from Amsterdam to two airports, Kilimanjaro International Airport ( KIA) and Dar Es Salaam International Airport (DAR). Other airlines include TURKISH AIRLINES, QATAR AIRLINES, CONDOR AIRLINES, KENYA AIRLINES and ETHIOPIAN AIRLINE etc. We can also book your international flights.
SHUTTLE BUS TO MOSHI, TANZANIA
Less expensive alternative: Fly to Nairobi, Kenya – continue with a shuttle bus to Tanzania. If you want to save money it might be wiser to fly to/from the Kenyan capital city Nairobi instead. From Nairobi Airport shuttle buses with air conditioning drive to Moshi/Arusha Tanzania in half a day for US$ 50 (return trips). These buses depart every day at 8.15am and at 2.15pm from Nairobi airport. Keep in mind that you’ll need a transit-visa for Kenya ($50) which can be arranged at the airport of Nairobi in Kenya or at the Embassy of Kenya in your country.
If you book your tickets early, the rates will be lower. Until the moment you actually book a flight, the rates can still change – early the better.
WHERE TO BOOK YOUR FLIGHTS?
If you can find the right rates for the right dates, then check with Cheetah Trekking if there is availability at the hotels and if there is a climb available. We always try to confirm this within 48 hours (Monday to Saturday), so you can book your flights and finish your booking with Tanzania Magic Tours.
To enter Tanzania you will also need yellow fever vaccine. If you are not vaccinated yet for the last 10 years please get vaccinated and bring certificate with you. It is possible to get vaccinated in the airport as you obtain VISA but we recommend you vaccinate at least 10 days before travelling since some people may experience problems with their bodies after vaccination like headache, general body weakness, mild fever, soreness, allergic reaction which could potentially be life-threatening, neurological reaction characterized by high fever, confusion, problems speaking, which can go on to cause coma and multi-organ failure after the vaccination especially for people over the age of 60.
Please take note that you will not be allowed to enter the country if you are not vaccinated. The passengers arrive in Tanzania without such accreditation, will be vaccinated by the authorized airport health Unit or returned to the country where they came from by the airline that carried them here. The vaccine will be charged 50 USD/ dose in any airport of entry.
The governmental authorities in Tanzania are taking these measures to reduce the possibility of someone who has been infected in their home country to bring the disease here.
All passengers and members of crew who while in transit through an airport situated in an area with risk of yellow fever transmission, remained within the airport premises during the period of their entire stay will not be considered as coming from the high risk countries and thus no vaccine. While those who stay in transit for more than 12 hours should be vaccinated, so please double check your flight route correctly.
