I will be traveling to Zanzibar in September, therefore I will need a visa for Tanzania. My flight will leave in Düsseldorf and stop in Amsterdam and Nairobi.
The Auswärtiges Amt (Department for foreign affairs) states that I will have to get a visa from the Tanzanian embassy, but I would have to get that via mail. In Germany the post was on a strike a few weeks ago and I am afraid that the mail with the visa will possibly not get to me before my holiday starts.
The Auswärtiges Amt also states that it is possible to get the visa during arrival at the Tanzanian airport. And now I am confused. Why should I get my visa at the embassy if it is possible during the arrival? Will it be more complicated or will I have to wait a long time? How is the procedure and what do I have to consider?
