Any person who owns, conducts or operates a tourism facility or activity and who provides or assists in providing services in a tourism facility or activity must hold a license for that purpose issued by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Tourism.
There are four classes/ divisions of tourism licences depending on the type of activity, Class A, Class B, Class C and Class D. Please click link to see the classification of tourism business.
Please note that tourism activities like car hire, travel agent and mountain climbing/trekking will only be issued to companies that are fully owned by Tanzanians as stipulated by the Tourism Act No.11 of 2008 section 58 (2)
A company practicing more than one tourism activity from different classes as seen in the link will have to register and apply for several licenses.
All tourism licences have to be renewed and paid annually.
