How to Apply for Tanzania e-Visa from Denmark

Tanzania's Government has launched a new e-Visa application scheme to make visa applications more accessible to international visitors to the country. It aims to improve border security and increase the number of foreign visitors planning to visit Tanzania for tourism and business. In addition, by making the visa application process simpler and faster, it helps save both time and money for the applicants.

Danish citizens are among those on the list of nationalities eligible to apply for the Tanzanian e-Visa. It is possible to apply for it online prior to travel, eliminating the need to visit an embassy. Travelers at the border can still obtain a visa on arrival; however, long lines are common, especially during peak hours, and visa fees vary per person and can only be paid in cash.
