Map of diplomatic missions in Tanzania
Map of diplomatic missions in Tanzania

This is a list of diplomatic missions in Tanzania. At present, 61 nations maintain diplomatic missions to Tanzania in Dar es Salaam, the former capital and the nation's largest city. Dodoma is the capital city.

Many other countries have ambassadors accredited to Tanzania, with most being resident in Nairobi or Addis Ababa. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs maintains the official consular list.[1] This listing excludes honorary consulates.

Diplomatic missions

Embassies and High Commissions in Dar es Salaam

Entries marked with an asterisk (*) are member-states of the Commonwealth of Nations. As such, their embassies are formally termed as "high commissions".

Offices in Dodoma

In July 2018, each of the resident diplomatic missions was offered 5.5 acres of land in the new capital in order to encourage relocation.[3] By February 2021, only ten countries had collected the title deeds.[4] Some diplomats estimate it may take over a decade for them to relocate.[5]

In January 2023, President Samia Suluhu Hassan appealed to the diplomatic community to benefit from the incentives that the government was offering before it expires.[6] Both the Holy See[7] and Uganda[8] have plans to relocate to Dodoma.
