Provision has been made for AORTIC 2009 delegates to obtain a visa upon arrival in Tanzania. After you have registered and provided proof of payment, the AORTIC 2009 Conference Secretariat will issue a letter from the Tanzania Ministry of Home Affairs stating that AORTIC 2009 delegates may obtain their visa upon arrival. Please print out this letter, as well as your letter of confirmation from the AORTIC 2009 Conference Secretariat, and present it with your passport in order to facilitate the visa process.


  • All visitors to Tanzania require a visa and it is your responsibility to carry enough cash to pay for this visa and to ensure that your travel document (passport) is valid.
  • Visas are not included in bursary support.
  • The AORTIC 2009 Conference Secretariat will try to answer any visa-related questions, but please note that the Secretariat is not responsible for delegates' visa applications.
