Where can you go with your Tanzanian passport without worrying about visa applications? I think this is a very good question that many might not know the answer to it..
Visa application process can be such a pain for different reasons, ( this will be a story of its own topic) the good news is; Tanzanian citizens have a lot of places to go around the world with either a quick online application (e-visa) or visa on arrival if not free entry.
In Africa a Tanzanian citizen can visit 29 countries visa free or entry visa on arrival and some countries with electronic visa application. Here’s a list: Benin, Botswana, Burundi, Comoros, Democratic Republic of Congo, Cape Verde, Eswatini, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Lesotho, Malawi, Mauritania, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Rwanda, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, South Sudan, Togo, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
