I took my two cats with me to Tanzania. They needed a import form which you i got from a veterinarian from Dar es salaam. You pay him and him make the papers in order. The veterinarian needs a few papers. Like the pasport of your pet, and the papers where is standing which vaccinations your pet has.

For Tanzania the pet need Rabies vaccination and a chip. But you can ask the veterinarian everything the pet needs. Find a veterinarian who is in Tanzania because they know what you all need, they can help you.

For the transport you need the transport box what is required at your airline. Most of them are the some but check before you buy anything.
