As a requirement for entry into Tanzania, all passports must be valid for at least six months AFTER your expected return date.  Please check your passport expiration date.  If your passport will expire within six months of your return date you MUST have your passport renewed.  No exceptions.

In addition, when traveling to Tanzania, all passports must have at least two consecutive blank pages.  Pages must lie side by side when passport is open.  If you do not have enough blank pages, you will need to have them added to your passport before your departure.
