Getting to Tanzania from the Airport

Julius Nyerere Airport is a 45 minute drive from the Upanga Campus (Conference Venue). It is a small airport and is normally crowded during the arrival of flights. Many international flights connect Dar es Salaam, the commercial capital of Tanzania. Though on-arrival visa is available for many countries, please check your country’s status at Tanzanian Immigration Services Department. 

Kindly note that the issuance of on-arrival visa takes about 45 minutes to an hour to process depending on the crowd. It is advisable to get the visa in advance from your country of origin. It is essential to carry Yellow fever card as it is checked on arrival. 

As you exit the airport, you will see people holding up signs. This is where most pick-ups are done.
