Dodoma. The government revealed its plans to finalize the granting of special status to citizens of other countries with Tanzanian roots.

This announcement was made by the Minister of Foreign Affairs and East African Cooperation, January Makamba, during the presentation of the ministry’s revenue and expenditure estimates for the financial year 2024/2025 to Parliament.


The decision to grant special status to Tanzanians who acquired citizenship of other countries after renouncing their original citizenship follows the Government’s intention expressed in the budget for the financial year 2023/2024.
