SOP for Tourism Tanzania
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the entire world, including Tanzania. In order to ensure the safety of tourists and locals, the Tanzanian government has implemented a set of standard operating procedures (SOPs) for COVID-19 response.
All tourists visiting Tanzania are required to present a negative COVID-19 test result, taken within 72 hours prior to arrival. Visitors who do not present a negative test result will be required to take a test upon arrival and quarantine until the results are available.
Tanzania has also implemented strict health protocols at all points of entry, including airports and ports. These protocols include temperature screenings, mandatory wearing of face masks, and physical distancing measures.
Tourists are also encouraged to practice good hygiene, including frequent hand washing and avoiding close contact with individuals who are displaying symptoms of COVID-19.
Tourists are advised to download the COVID-19 App, which will help monitor their health status and provide real-time updates on COVID-19 in Tanzania.
Hotels, resorts, and other tourist accommodations must follow strict SOPs for cleanliness and sanitation. All tourist sites and attractions, including national parks and wildlife reserves, must also follow SOPs to ensure the safety of visitors.
In the event of a COVID-19 outbreak, the Tanzanian government has established a comprehensive response plan that includes contact tracing, testing, and isolation of affected individuals.
Tanzania remains committed to providing a safe and enjoyable experience for all tourists while also protecting public health. Visitors are encouraged to follow all COVID-19 SOPs and to take personal responsibility for their health and safety.
Please note that these SOPs are subject to change as the COVID-19 situation evolves. It is advisable to stay updated on the latest developments and requirements before traveling to Tanzania.
