Warning Transportation Health Entry/Exit Tanzania

International flights and cross-border traffic are operational. Arriving international travelers are no longer required to undergo a 14-day quarantine period; travelers are also no longer required to produce proof of having tested negative for COVID-19 upon entry into Tanzania unless their airline or country of origin requires it as a condition of travel.

Travelers arriving at airports, including Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR), Mwanza International Airport (MWZ), Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO), and Abeid Amani Karume International Airport (ZNZ), must undergo enhanced screening for COVID-19 upon arrival. Persons testing positive for the disease may be required to self-isolate for up to 14 days.

All international travelers are urged to adhere to hygiene measures, such as hand-washing, wearing facemasks, and complying with social-distancing guidelines.

  • All travelers are required to fill out a traveler's surveillance form available onboard and submit it upon arrival.
  • Although overland international travel is permitted, screenings and hygiene measures are mandatory.
  • COVID-19-related measures could be tightened or eased at short notice. Disruptions to supply chains and shortages of essential goods are possible.

Advice

Follow all official instructions. Reconfirm all travel arrangements before departure, including possible self-isolation requirements. Maintain contact with your diplomatic representation. Consider delaying travel if showing COVID-19-like symptoms as they may prompt increased scrutiny and delays.

Emphasize basic health precautions, especially frequent handwashing with soap and water, or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are unavailable. Practice good coughing/sneezing etiquette (i.e., covering coughs and sneezes with a disposable tissue, maintaining distance from others, and washing hands). There is no evidence that the influenza vaccine, antibiotics, or antiviral medications will prevent this disease, highlighting the importance of basic health precautions.
