TANZANIA: Expected delays in visa processing due to restructuring within the government

Following a huge investigation into the educational background of Tanzanian Civil Servants the President of Tanzania has ordered the dismissal of nearly 10,000 government officials.

A report of the audit revealed that many of the Civil Servants had used fraudulent high school qualifications to gain their position. 

The officials named in the report have been given until the 15 May 2017 to resign voluntarily if they want to avoid legal proceedings.

How Does This Affect the Client?

Employer’s and applicants in Tanzania should expect much longer waiting times for approvals or even responses on visa and permit applications and therefore lead should be revised.
