Get to Know Kilimanjaro Airport

Halfway between Arusha and Moshi in north-east Tanzania, this is where your northern circuit safari or Kili trek will begin.

Kilimanjaro International Airport (JRO) is halfway between the two major towns of Tanzania’s north-east, Arusha and Moshi, 40km from each. Arusha is where most northern circuit safaris start and Moshi, at the base of Mount Kilimanjaro, is the start to most Kilimanjaro climbing expeditions. 

As soon as you disembark from the plane a medical officer will ask for your yellow fever vaccination certificate (a yellow card with the date of your vaccination). Then you must complete your entry visa application form (unless you already have an entry visa stamped in your passport). Fill in the arrivals card and queue in the visa application line, where you'll have to pay for your entry visa in US dollars, so make sure you have dollars in cash. Most tourist visas are $50 per person, but American citizens pay $100 per person for a single-entry tourist visa. Your picture is taken, your fingerprints scanned and your visa printed and pasted into your passport. You need at least three blank pages in your passport. From the visa, application desk goes to immigration, where they'll check your passport and wave you through to the baggage claim area.
