On 26 November, 2018 Tanzania launched electronic visa and residence permit services for foreign nationals wishing to visit or live in Tanzania, aiming to enhance efficiency and boost security as well as revenue collection.

Speaking during the launch, Tanzania's Prime Minister Kassim Majaliwa urged the beneficiaries of the new e-documents to abide by the laws of Tanzania and conditions of their visit or residence, according to a statement availed to the media yesterday.

"Electronic visas and residence permits launched on Monday are parts of efforts made by the government to ease access to the country with the view to promoting investment especially in the industrial sector," the Tanzanian premier said.

The e-immigration service started immediately after the launch, meaning all foreigners wishing to visit or reside in Tanzania can make such applications online from all corners of the globe.
