Tanzania Visas for Kilimanjaro

When going to Tanzania for a Kilimanjaro climb, you have to get a Visa which will allow you to enter the country as a tourist. The visa is good for three months.

So here are our Visa pictures. Neither of us like our picture, but who really likes Passport-style pictures anyway? I don't think I've ever met anyone who said, "Oh, I just love the picture on my driver's license!"


    

It's really kind of nerve-wracking to put our passports in the mail, especially this close to our travel. I know it's standard practice, but we sent them FedEx anyway, and sent a return FedEx label and return FedEx envelope so that we can be sure to get our passprts back in a timely manner, and can track their progress along the way.

Each Visa costs $50, and the FedEx packages cost $17 and $13.

Total = $130.

At some point after our trip concludes, I will post on here our total costs, so that you can see what it might take for you to get to Kilimanjaro too!

One thing to remember, you do have to get a tourist visa!

The visa pictures are perfect. Now, question, we are planning to just get our visas done when we land at Kilimanjaro airport - do you feel it is better to do it on this end before you go? Thanks for your expert advice! I can't believe you leave in about a week - wow. Scot

Hey Scot! I think it's better to get them before going. I just feel better knowing that I have the Visa granting me access. There probably wouldn't be any problem with doing it at the airport, but if there were, it could spoil the trip, right at the beginning. Know what I mean? What do you think?

We're quite amazed that it's really only a week away as well! We're doing inventory today to make sure we have everything we need!
