You are a US citizen - you can easily get your Tanzanian visa upon arrival at the airport. If you can, download and print the visa application before you travel, and have it completed. How long it takes will depend on the hour of your arrival, which airport, and how busy it is when you arrive. The process itself does not take long, it is more a matter of how long the line is. Do not linger disembarking the plane. That said, as many times as I have landed in Tanzania, I have always still waited for my bags, even after the visa process. They will stamp your US passport right then with the TZ visa.

Find the form here:


You do not need passport sized photos any longer; they will take your photo and fingerprints, according to reports of people who have done it recently, there is a sticky, above on the topic of visas. pay attention to the newer posts.
