Tanzania Airport Authority (TAA) has introduced a security fees

The Tanzania Airport Authority (TAA) has introduced a security levy to be imposed on passengers boarding aircraft at domestic and international airports within Tanzania. It will also affect foreign tourists booked to visit this African destination, but please check with your own international airline.

The new fee of TZS 5,000 (US$2) for those boarding domestic flights and US$5 for those on international flights will be used for enhancement of airport security through installation of high-tech equipment and safety services, including perimeter fences and state-of-the-art scanning machines to improve detection. Over time, it should hopefully reduce the occasions for those often intrusive body searches on our travelers.

It has been confirmed that the security levy will affect both foreign and domestic travelers booked with airlines flying inside and outside Tanzania, and will take effect from Thursday 1st November 2018.
