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 climb Mount Kilimanjaro. It is the responsibility of every traveller to secure a VISA and a valid travel document in the form of a passport

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.
