Tanzania has attracted many tourists over the years, and for good reason. Where else can you find a country with the nicest and most welcoming locals, a rich diversity of different ethnicities with interesting histories, mouth-watering cuisine, wildlife and of course, Mt. Kilimanjaro!

So, if you have even half a mind to visit Tanzania, here is how. Firstly, you will need a passport and a tourist visa. However, if you are from Barbados, Jamaica, Hong Kong, Malaysia, or an African country (almost all of them), you do not require a visa.

A tourist visa can be easily obtained at the airport upon arrival, or at the border crossing if you’re traveling by road. For US citizens, a tourist visa costs $100; for citizens of other countries, it costs $50. Only the US dollar is accepted.

The currency in Tanzania is called the Tanzanian Shilling and can be exchanged at hotels, banks, and currency exchange offices.
