Visa application service

The event organisers can facilitate visa applications in Dar Es Salaam at no additional cost for participants other than the cost of the visa. To use this service, participants must opt-in by selecting the appropriate option when registering for the event. Opting-in will add an additional $50 to the total bill to cover the cost of the visa (or $100 if the participant holds a US passport). Participants will have to email a copy of their passport and a passport photo. We will take care of the rest.

If you hold one of the passports listed in the third grouping then you are required to apply for your visa three months ahead of time, which will be June 20th in this case. We strongly advise you to take advantage of our visa service to ensure that you visa is processed in time, but please note that we will be unable to guarantee timely processing of your visa if you register after 13th June.

Participants deciding not to use this service are responsible for obtaining their own visas and should contact their nearest Tanzanian High Commission.
