You must meet the entry requirements laid down by the Tanzanian government to enter Tanzania. Since government regulation is prone to change you need to consult with concerned government agencies before traveling. So here is a brief overview which is meant to serve as a guideline. Citizens of 66 countries are exempted from the valid visa requirement when entering the country and staying for three months or less. While citizens of some countries are granted visa on arrival, the citizens of a select group of countries need a visa before arrival.
