Transit visa required in Tanzania?

I am asking here because i can not get an answer from any of the calls I did.

I am flying Zurich to Mombasa and I just realice my flight stops 2 hours in Tanzania airport (kilimanjaro I think) and I was not prepare for that. Do I require a visa? I ask swiss and they said they do not think so...great help! and them the embassy does not pick up the phone, I check in google and I found few forums and webs where look like I will require a visa..

Any one has experience that and chelp me?

Thank you!!

Hi Seyon, I think you will find that if the flight continues onto to Mombasa, then you don`t get off the plane and you won`t need a visa.

Most likely you will not need a visa as you will be staying on the plane during the transit stop.
I think you are flying KLM: they used to have a great visa tool on their web site where you enter all the details and get an answer if you need a visa. Try it.
