Tanzania Departure Tax Increases from July 2012

We have just received information that the international departure tax from Tanzania is to increase from $30.00 to $40.00.

Tanzania domestic departure tax will also increase from $5.00 to $8.00 each way on departures from main airports but not national park airstrips.

Prices for flights from park airstrips will not be affected. The Lake Manyara Airstrip is not in the national park and therefore will be affected by the increase.

This increase goes into effect on all flights within Tanzania from 01 July 2012.

These taxes are in addition to the mandatory safety/security tax of $1.00 per sector for all domestic flights from airports and airstrip including in the parks and any fuel surcharges and insurance fees that individual airlines may have introduced.

There is also an $8.00 safety/security fee for all international departures that remains unchanged.
