Nigerian passport holders do require a tourist visa (single-entry visa) for Tanzania, and this process is relatively easy! You will need to apply at the Tanzania High Commission in Abuja. Another option to consider is to have a host in Tanzania get the visa for you. Apply for your visa at least 15 days before your departure date to allow for ample processing time and in case additional documents are required.

Please note: Tanzania and Zanzibar have the same visa requirements. Check your eligibility before beginning the application process and submit your application well in advance of your flight departure. Once you have your visa, all that’s left to do is pack your bags!
This process is applicable to Nigerian passport holders.
