Going to Germany?
Passport holders of Tanzania do require a visa to enter Germany.
Depending on the purpose and duration of your stay in Germany you can either apply for a Schengen visa for short term stays or a National visa for long term stays (> 90 days). Please note: the German Embassy is currently responsible for the processing of national visa for nationals residing in Tanzania and Comores.
The German Embassy Dar Es salaam have outsourced the application process for Schengen visas to the external service Provider TLScontact.
In principle, all applications for Schengen visas must be handed in at one of the Visa Application Centres of TLScontact who will guide you through the application process.
Please do not send the Visa Section any documents unless requested to do so, particularly not before you have applied for a visa. If further documentation is required we will get in touch with you. Please always bring a complete set of documents with you to your appointment.
For visa and travel information for citizens of the United Kingdom and their relatives please check the information on the Website of the German Embassy in London.
