Plastic Bags Ban in Tanzania

The Government of Tanzania has placed a prohibition on plastic bags effective June 1, 2019.

All plastic carrier bags, regardless of their thickness, will be prohibited from being imported, exported, manufactured, sold, stored, supplied, and used in Mainland Tanzania.  The only exceptions to the plastic bag ban will be for plastic or plastic packaging for medical services, industrial products, the construction industry, the agricultural sector, foodstuffs, and sanitary and waste management.

Visitors to Tanzania are also advised to avoid carrying plastic bags in their suitcases or hand luggage, with the exception of the required “Ziploc type” bags specifically used to carry toiletries and other liquids of 100 milliliters or less through airport security screenings.  These “Ziploc” bags must remain in the permanent possession of the traveler and not disposed of in Tanzania.
