Dan and I recently applied for visitor visas to Tanzania for a trip we are planning early next year. I received a confirmation email straight away, and the visa followed a couple of days later. Dan, however, didn’t receive any confirmation email even though the money came out of our account. We emailed Tanzania Immigration services, however we didn’t receive any replies. Dan later tried to call the phone number listed for Tanzania Immigration, however instead of a helpful Immigration officer on the other end, he heard a recorded voice message stating that the immigration department hadn’t paid their bills, so our call won’t go through.
“Sorry, your call is not through, for the callee has not paid the fee.”
