Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya are ''open’’ and anxiously waiting to welcome you with a big smile and an elbow bump!

Tanzania is one of the few countries in the world, not imposing any COVID restrictions. Since the 15th of June 2020, Tanzania has opened its airspace again and travellers from oversees don’t have to go in quarantine, nor have to show a PCR test. Lodges, campsites, national parks and restaurants are open and Roadtrip Tanzania is fully operational, and basically back to normal.
When you arrive by plain or overland, you don’t need to show a negative COVID test, but your temperature will be measured.
Where to do a PCR test in Tanzania
In case you need to get a PCR test done in Tanzania, this can be done at Hai District Hospital, near JRO airport, and Celian Hospital (monday - friday) and Mount Meru Hospital ( 7 days a week) in Arusha. No need to make an appointment, but take note its an inefficient, time consuming process, which will take a few hours. Also in Karatu ( near the Ngorongoro), and Central Serengeti (Seronera), its possible to do a PRC tests. Their are plans to also establish a test lab in Arusha in March, but currently all samples are flown to the test lab of Dar es Salaam, and results are only communicated after 3 days. In Dar es Salaam, you can go to Amana Hospital, and the results should be know within 48 hours.
