Travel Tips

All foreign passengers (none Tanzanian citizens) are required to carry their passports when traveling between the islands of Zanzibar and mainland Tanzania. Foreign passengers are required to pay for their tickets in United States Dollars (USD$). We do however accept payments in UK Pound Sterling (Stg) and Euro (€). All other currencies are not acceptable. 

Foreigners with resident permits or exemption certificates are allowed to pay for their fares in Tanzanian Shillings and will be charged the normal fares applicable for citizens. Tanzanian citizens are encouraged to carry some identification to prove their citizenship. 

We recommend all passengers buy their tickets from our offices in Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar, or Pemba and from our approved travel agents throughout the country. Please do not buy tickets from people in the streets claiming to be our agents.
