KARIBU-KILIFAIR 2022 and COVID-19
Arrival in Tanzania: All international airports in Tanzania are prepared for COVID-19 preventive measures and are equipped with fully trained staff. Tourists arriving in Tanzania need to present a negative PCR test (06-2021). General guidelines, hygiene rules, body temperature checks, mask requirements for airport staff, as well as disinfection and distance regulations apply. Entry is therefore hygienically flawless. From 25.04.2021 all travelers (including children) are required to complete a Travellers Surveillance Form online, to be submitted within 24 hours before arrival. Upon submission you will receive a unique Health Code which will be requested during arrival. Should an incoming tourist show symptoms of COVID-19, he must seek medical treatment at his own expense and, if necessary, be isolated in a 14-day quarantine.
Since August 2021 Tanzania started to vaccinate its citizens and most staff working in Tour Companies and Hotels are vaccinated already.
Airplane safety: Safety precautions against the spread of COVID-19 are also observed on international flights. The aircraft of all major airlines that are currently flying to Tanzania (Ethiopian Airlines, Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines and KLM) are cleaned and disinfected in the appropriate areas before and during the flight. All aircrafts are equipped with the so-called HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filter. This ensures that 99.97% of all viral and bacterial contamination is filtered out of the air. With this system, the air in the cabin is constantly filtered, completely replaced every 3 minutes and enriched with fresh outside air, which is distributed into the cabin from above via air nozzles. Used air is sucked down through floor nozzles and sent through the HEPA filter again. It is also important to know, that the air in the cabin does not move horizontally between the seats, but is sucked downwards. Currently (02-2021) all Airlines (excluding Ethiopian Airlines) are requiring a COVID-19 test certificate not older than 48 hours before boarding the airplane.

All companies active in tourism, their staff or service providers are trained in COVID-19 precaution and measures. If you booked a Fam-Trip with us, you can assume that your trip in Tanzania is subject to the current world-wide COVID-19 standards.
