Can non residents Open a bank account in Zanzibar?

Hi there, I'm looking for some advice - is it possible as a non resident to open a bank account in Zanzibar?
We own a property here, and have insurance, but we have been told you need a residence permit to open a bank account.

You DO NEED a resident permit to open a bank account.
This is compulsory.
It is quite uneasy to obtain a resident permit in Tanzania nowadays.
If you are just retired and have no business activity, it will be easier.
But you need to be patient !

Thank you.

without resident status not possible.
