|This is a pretty straightforward, well-organised and relaxed border crossing at Lunga Lunga between coastal Kenya and Tanzania. Expect the border formalities to be professional, but to take some time (especially if you arrive with a bus load of people). There is a 6.5km distance to be covered between the border post at Lunga Lunga and the Tanzanian Horohoro side.|

|First, on the Kenyan side, you’ll have your yellow fever certificate checked before entering into a sit down/stand up immigration queue. After your stamp, head to the Horohoro post in Tanzania about a 5-minute walk away before again having your certificate checked. If you need to buy a visa, you’ll need to complete a blue form and pay someone in a separate office (effectively skipping the remaining queues).|
|Be sure to bring your yellow fever certificate as well as the correct amount of post-2006 US dollars for the visa fee (if you haven’t already organised yours in advance).|
|To change money, once you’ve been stamped into Tanzania, start walking out of the car park towards the main exit gate. Someone should approach you pretty quickly. At the time of writing, KES1,000 was TZS20,000.|

Anonymous112954: How much will I pay crossing Lunga Lunga with a truck trailer or what do I require
(Admin) Daniel: I don't know if there's a fee for crossing with different vehicles. It may cost you nothing more than the visa. Can anyone confirm this?
