Relocating to and living in Tanzania necessitates lots of reliable information on different facets of Tanzanian expat life. Many questions come up when living overseas in Tanzania: ʺAre we, as expats, liable to Tanzanian income tax law?ʺ, ʺShould I register with my native country's embassy upon arrival?ʺ, ʺHow to find a trustworthy maid in Dar es Salaam?ʺ, or ʺWhat are the requirements to get a Tanzanian residence permit for my wife?ʺ

Looking for so much information on working and living in Tanzania is rather bothersome and requires a lot of time.

Various topics are covered in our Tanzania Expat Guide from food and shopping, to health-care or embassies and consulates, up to international schools.
