The ministry of natural resources and tourism started the shift from analogue to digital on July 1st 2013. They are accessible over the internet and one can fill them in individually or can get help from their operator.
The forms can be filled individually or they can completed with the help of the operator. If you are to get help from the operator you are to go to there offices . Their offices include Tourist hunting , CITES and photographic tourism office in Arusha, Selous Game reserve at Mtemere entry games and wildlife Division headquarters in Dar es salaam.
Regulation 4 of the wildlife conservation regulation of 2008 requires all tourist operators to have a permit from the director of wildlife before conducting any tourism outside of the national parks and conservations.
Prior consent is needed from the director of wildlife in order for commercial and re-creative activities like photography, filming; rafting ; canoeing and balloon flight and more to take place.
Businesses or Investors who participate in the use of non consumptive wildlife utilization are meant to have their company registered by a competent authority in Tanzania . They are to follow the general management plan of the area.
The move from analog to digital is a very smart move. Not only does this mean that time will be saved but this gives a lot of people the chance to start up businesses much faster than to wait for days and weeks for something to be processed. The shift from old school to digital is slowly taking its toll on Africa as a positive thing. We can only wait and see the effects of the digital system which i hope will have a positive effect for Tanzania.
