Travelled on

September 20, 2020

  Optional Covid test  
  No mandatory quarantine  

I traveled from IAD airport in DC to Tanzania via Qatar airways. TZ does not require COVID testing but I got tested within 3 days of departure just in case. My husband traveled from Ghana to Tanzania via Ethiopian airways. His airline asked for a negative COVID test within 3 days of departure before boarding. He also needed to get COVID tested in TZ within 3 days of returning back to Ghana PLUS pay $150 for a COVID test upon arrival in Ghana.

It was all worth it because it had been 554 days since we saw each other and we had the best time in mainland TZ and Zanzibar!
