Tazanian online visas have been in effect since mid-2018, thanks to the effort of the Tanzanian Government to go digital. All travellers that desire to climb Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania will need a passport which will remain valid for at least 6 months longer than your expected visit. You will also need to present proof that you have a return ticket, and proof that you have sufficient money to support yourself during your stay in Tanzania.
Having a passport is one of the requirements to acquire a Tanzanian VISA if you wish to visit Tanzania for climbing Mount Kilimanjaro. It is the responsibility of every traveller to secure a VISA and a valid travel document in the form of a passport.
If you currently don’t have a passport, you can see how long it takes to renew your passport so you won’t run in to any issues
Commonwealth countries like the U.K, New Zealand, India, the United States of America (USA) Canada, Australia, and most EU countries do not require a VISA to enter Tanzania.
However, it is recommended to check with your embassies and high commissions abroad to check for Tanzania VISA requirements.
