No, you cannot enter Tanzania with a Schengen visa. The Schengen visa is a visa that permits you to travel to any of the 26 Schengen nations. Tanzania is not a Schengen member, thus you will need to obtain a separate visa to enter the country.
You can enter Tanzania through a land border if you have a Schengen visa, but you will still need to get a Tanzanian visa before you visit. You can apply for a Tanzanian visa at your home country's Tanzanian embassy or consulate. It's more convenient to apply for a Tanzania visa, which can be done through our official Tanzania Immigration Services website. The eVisa process is usually simpler and time-saving, allowing you to apply remotely from your home country.
Here are the visa requirements for Tanzania:
- Passport: Your passport must be valid for at least 6 months after your intended date of departure from Tanzania.
- Passport Scan - You must also scan and submit one for your eVisa application, and you must show two recent passport pictures to enter Tanzania. For rapid action, download a scanning app for your phone.
- A digital passport-style photo
- Proof of travel: You must provide proof of onward travel, such as a plane ticket.
The processing time for a Tanzanian visa is usually 1 to 3 business days. You can check the visa processing time on the Tanzania Immigration Services website.
