IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? A recently announced plan to register and issue IDs to all foreign residents staying in Tanzania for longer than six months has not been implemented yet and is not yet part of the application process for long-term work permits.
What does the change mean? No deadline for foreign national registration has been set; the work permit application process remains the same until further notice by the Tanzanian government.
Background: The National Identification Authority recently announced that it would register and issue ID cards to all residents staying in Tanzania for more than six months, including foreign nationals holding work and resident permits and family members over 18 years old.
The NIDA will charge a filing fee for registration and an ID card of US$50 for employees, US$100 for investors, and US$20 for dependents, researchers, students and missionaries.
The NIDA is currently registering civil service employees until Oct. 30 and has said it will issue a notice before beginning to register other residents.
BAL Analysis: Until further notice, foreign residents and work permit applicants are not yet required to register. Businesses and foreign employees should anticipate the additional step and government fees once registration procedures are announced and implemented.
This alert has been provided by the BAL Global Practice group and our network provider located in Tanzania. For additional information, please contact your BAL attorney.
