How to Obtain your Zanzibar Visa?

Zanzibar is part of the United Republic of Tanzania. That's to say that the very same visa used to enter Tanzania is the same one used to enter Zanzibar. You can now apply for the Zanzibar visa online.

You will be required to fill in the form, make the payment on the spot, and submit your application. All this is to be performed online. Your form will be internally reviewed and processed.

You'd later be notified using the email credentials you've provided whether your application has been accepted or rejected. You can also track the progress of your application using a reference that would be provided once the form has been submitted. You may as well be required to visit the nearest Tanzanian Embassies or Consular Offices for interviews.
