Effective immediately, Tanzanian immigration authorities have introduced additional corporate documentary requirements for resident permit applicants.  The additional requirements are as follows:

  • Current status of shareholders from the Business Registration and Licensing Agency (BRELA);
  • Current immigration status of company shareholders;
  • Tax clearance certificate (this was a listed as a requirement in the past but applications were accepted without it); and
  • Tax payment slips from the previous fiscal year.

Failure to submit these additional documents with a residence permit application will result in application refusal.
