"My stay in Hostel Hoff made my trip to Tanzania. The support and assistance they offer is second to none. I had no idea what to expect or what lay ahead of me when I booked my flights to Kili on a whim. The help and guidance I recieved from the staff and fellow hoffers was invaluable, not to mention the fabulous friendships".
To volunteer in Tanzania for 1-3 months you will require an ordinary Visa which costs USD$50 for other nationalities and USD$100 for American passport holders. These can be purchased upon arrival at the airport or border crossing in Tanzania. It can also be purchased online before arrival through the link below https://eservices.immigration.go.tz/visa. Be aware this process can take 2 -3 weeks. Here’s a breakdown of the visa according to requirements.
All these three visas are non-renewable and covers you for up to three months.
This visa fee is implemented by the Tanzanian government and it is mandatory to anyone volunteering within Tanzania.
For volunteer opportunities longer than 3 months please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire about additional visa requirements.
To book a place in our volunteering hostel, please contact us directly via email. At this time, we will email you a booking form and additional information.

Please note that if bringing USD notes, make sure they are printed on/after 2009 as any older notes printed before this, are not accepted anywhere in Tanzania. Larger denominations (USD$50 & USD$100) are better to bring as they worth more here than the smaller denominations.
