Tanzania e-Visa requirements for Swedish citizens

Tourists from Sweden who want to visit Tanzania can now apply for an e-Visa.

The Tanzania e-Visa is an electronic travel authorization that was introduced in Tanzania in 2018 to make it easier for short-term visitors to obtain a visa. The e-Visa, unlike a regular visa, does not necessitate a visit to an embassy or the submission of a paper application. The entire procedure takes only a few minutes to complete.

Tanzanian e-Visa is a one-time entry visa that allows visitors to stay in Tanzania for up to three months for tourism, leisure, or short-term business. Tanzania's mainland and Zanzibar are both covered by the e-Visa.
