The East Africa Tourist Visa (EATV) allows applicants wishing to travel to the East African Community (EAC) countries of Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda (not Tanzania), to obtain one visa to cover all three countries. The visa allows for multiple entry within the EAC region within the validity period of 90 days. The holder shall also be allowed to move out of the EAC region to other countries and return without having to pay for another visa. This will only be applicable in the period of 90 days. The EATV cannot be extended.
Applicants must apply for the visa through the Embassy of the country they will be entering first and will be obliged to enter only through that country. An application for an East Africa Tourist Visa may be made manually or online by submitting EATV Form 1. Follow the links below for the country you will be visiting.

Travellers entering Tanzania overland or overseas from Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda or Burundi will be required to show a Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate to immigration officials upon arrival. It is not necessary to provide a copy with your visa application.
Multiple entry visas are not issued, however, a single-entry visa will allow a traveller to re-enter Tanzania if they visit a member country of the East Africa Community (Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi), after their initial entry into Tanzania as long as the visa is still valid.
Applicants arriving from a yellow fever risk area or applicants who transited through such an area for more than 12 hours must carry a yellow fever certificate to present to immigration officials if requested
