Most countries require a visa for entry with your Tanzania passport; however, there are some visa-free countries that will grant you entry for a specified amount of days or sometimes even months without a visa. While Tanzanians need a visa to enter almost all countries, there are some nations whose citizens can travel almost anywhere without any restriction.
The Henley & Partners Visa Restrictions Index is a global ranking of visa-free countries according to the travel freedom that their citizens enjoy. Henley & Partners has analyzed the visa regulations of all the countries and territories in the world and created an index which ranks countries according to the visa-free access their citizens enjoy to other countries. In the case of Tanzania, examples of these countries include: Albania, Cook Islands, Djibouti, Dominica, Ethiopia, Ecuador, Fiji, Grenada, Gambia, Georgia, Haiti, Nepal, Namibia, St Lucia, Singapore, Seychelles, Swaziland, Tuvalu, Togo, Trinidad & Tobago, Timor-Leste, Uganda, Vanuatu, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
It should be, however, noted that some countries within this list will only allow you to stay in their country without a visa for up to around 90 days before a visa is either purchased or you are sent back home. It is important to find out before traveling whether you need a visa to enter your destination or transit country.
