Through this website you will be able to find a wide range of information relating to the work of the Ministry including information on Tanzania's Diplomatic Missions Abroad and Diplomatic Missions Accredited to Tanzania, Services offered by the Ministry and its Missions abroad, Information on Trade, Investment Opportunities, Tourism, Employment Opportunities, Tanzanian Nationals living and working abroad (Diaspora), News and Events.

It will also compliment the Ministry's endeavor of maintaining, strengthening and promoting bilateral and multilateral relations between Tanzania and other countries. Moreover, the website will serve as an effective tool to advance and realize the government's newly established process aimed at engaging Tanzanian's Diaspora in the Socio-economic Development of the country.

It is therefore my singular honor to once again welcome you to Tanzania, the land of Serengeti, Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar.
