Welcome to the Embassy of Sweden in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

The Embassy of Sweden in Tanzania represents the Swedish government in the United Republic of Tanzania. The Embassy's overall mission is to strengthen the relations between Sweden and Tanzania, both government to government, and between citizens, companies and organisations in the two countries.

Our consular section has the responsibility to assist both Swedish citizens who are visiting Tanzania, and Tanzanian citizens who wish to visit Sweden. Swedish citizens who are either living in Tanzania or visiting for a longer period, as well foreign family members of Swedish citizens are welcome to register on the Embassy list of Swedes in Tanzania. The list of Swedes is used for contingency purposes and for common information of interest. Please refer to the Swedish language section of the web site for further information and registration form.

In the area of commerce and trade, the Embassy encourages exchanges between Sweden and Tanzania and assists companies from the two countries with general information on investment opportunities and business environment.

The Embassy is also responsible for the development cooperation between Sweden and Tanzania, which is aimed at supporting Tanzania's reform process, reducing poverty and promoting development towards democracy and increased respect for the human rights.
