When to get a Tanzania visa

I'm off to Tanzania (Kili) in Feb 2010, and although I could get my visa in advance, all sources seem to indicate that its not only cheaper, but perfectly quick and easy to get it on arrival at the airport.

Is this correct? (I'm doing the land only option, so wouldn't be holding up the rest of the group by waiting at the airport).

I bought one at the airport in Kathmandu and was the first one through to the baggage carousel as the queue was for Visas obtained in advance to be checked. Also it was cheaper.


Did Kili in August, got mine before I went but for those that got it at the airport, it was cheaper & quicker than queuing, as we were, to get into the country! I'd leave it til you get there!


Did Kili last month, got my visa prior to going, however 3 members of the group got visa's at Kilimanjaro Airport, it cost them $50 and was hassle free


Really depends last time  I was there Oct 2009 it took about 3 hours to process my visa at airport,tiring after a long flight


sorry just read back Oct 2008 was my last visit to Tanzania
