Tanzania Visa and Cost

Jump to last reply

Since this topic hasn't been brought up for over 1 1/2 years, I will ask what the current cost to get a Tanzania Visa is before leaving the US. We will be traveling with OAT and they strongly recommend getting it before and going through their 3rd party Visa getting company. If one does it on own, seems like the cost is $100 and one must mail passport , photos, and application to Embassy in Washington DC. Going through the 3rd party, however, seems like the cost is $140 + 25 mailing fees. So, looks like 3rd part fee is $40. Seems to me that i can do this on my own for the $100 and use Fed Ex or similar for much less than $25. I know that in prior posts most people seemed to think it better to get Visa upon landing at airport , but we will be with a group and to have to make people in group wait on those getting it there doesn't seem right. Also, don't think I would worry about sending passport to Tanzanian Embassy in Washington. They do it all the time , I'm sure.

Thoughts/Opinions appreciated !
