Visa to Tanzania, The Best Guide for Nigerian Passport Holders

Published

on

Nigerians and other nationalities that fall under this must submit their visa to Tanzania applications online and should wait until their applications are approved before starting their journey. Applicants should submit their applications at least 2 months before their travel date.

Having an invitation letter or a request letter for a visa from a Host adds credibility when applying and increases the chances of approval greatly. The invitation letter must be uploaded via the online application and should not be sent via email. The letter may be uploaded separately or merged with the Itinerary of the Trip and uploaded in the Return ticket field.

The easiest way to resolve this is by booking your trip via a travel agent, but if you have friends, colleagues, or family in Tanzania, a letter from them will help your application process.
