Welcome to the website of the Embassy of Ireland in Tanzania
Here you will find information on Ireland’s development assistance
programme in Tanzania, consular, passport and visa information,
current travel advice and general information about Ireland.
The Embassy is located in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and is also
accredited to Kenya, Burundi, Eritrea and the East African
Community. Our role is to maintain and strengthen Ireland’s
good relations with the countries we cover and the East African
Community, and to support and assist Irish citizens and Irish
business in the region. Ireland also has a Consulate in
Nairobi - further details are available here .
As well as carrying out political, trade and consular functions,
the Embassy manages Ireland’s development programme in Tanzania.
The Irish Aid programme has been running since 1979 and has a
longstanding focus on agricultural development and improved health
services, complemented by a more recent emphasis on the importance
of adequate nutrition. To achieve the programme’s goals,
Ireland works in partnership with the government of Tanzania by
supporting national systems for the delivery of services that
matter most to households across Tanzania. Further
information on our development programme is available in the
summary of our current
Country Strategy paper 2011 – 2015 (PDF 579kb) .
This website is designed to provide you with useful and timely
information and I hope you find it helpful. For those of you
planning on visiting Tanzania or our countries of secondary
accreditation, we recommend registering your details with the
Embassy here and
checking our Travel Advice
Section before you go. We also welcome queries from
business – if you believe the Embassy may be able to assist you in
exploring opportunities for trade with Ireland or the East African
region, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
