Reply To: Visa on arrival

Back to Forum


From recent personal experience, beware of the opportunities that “visa on arrival” processes present for local immigration to seek to extract bribes and questionable additional payments. My experience was Dar es Salam and was quite shocking where an additional payment of USD 250 was demanded on an absolutely spurious basis. I knew from previous vists that such demand for payment was not valid and in the end did not pay but there is limited scope to insist in a crowded arrivals hall at 6am after an 8 hour flight.
