Tanzania Travel Restrictions Lifted!

Last week Tanzania’s President John Magufuli announced that there would be no more restrictions against travelers arriving in the country.

On March 23rd, 2020, the government subjected foreigners to mandatory 14 days of quarantine, thus eliminating tourism for Tanzania. This measure has now been lifted.

The high season for tourists normally begins in June and lasts until October. However, due to Covid-19, it is projected that the country will experience a 76% drop in visitors this year. Employment in the tourism industry is expected to fall from 623,000 jobs to 146,000 jobs.

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism released National Standard Operating Procedures for management of the COVID-19 threat. The comprehensive document details the rules put in place to continue operations while at the same time protecting visitors.
