Visa for Tanzania are required by most of all visitors. The cost of a visa is US$ 50 and US$ 100 for US passport holder. A single entry visa is typically valid for 90 days from the date of issued.
We recommend you to get visa in advance at the Embassy of Tanzania in your country though visas are currently issued at the Tanzania international airports and most border crossings to avoid any problems.
We strongly recommend you buy travel insurance that covers whole your travel.
Almost all hospitals and doctors in Tanzania request payment in cash so before you buy insurance you need to check your insurance plan will make payments directly to providers or reimburse you later for overseas health expenditures. Also it is vital important that your travel insurance will cover any emergency transport required to get you all the way home by air and with a medical attendant if necessary. If you climb mountains please also check and buy a insurance that covers climbing activities.
