  • Overview
    The United Republic of Tanzania is a historically important refugee-hosting country and global champion for refugee solutions. The majority of refugees and asylum seekers are from Burundi and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Chronic underfunding has resulted in serious gaps in the provision of humanitarian assistance.

    UNHCR supports the Government of Tanzania in discharging its international obligations, fulfilling the organisation’s core objectives to provide refugees, asylum seekers and other people of concern with international protection, and to seek durable solutions to displacement.

    In 2014, Tanzania made a landmark decision to naturalize some 162,000 Burundian refugees who fled to Tanzania in 1972, marking the largest group in UNHCR’s history to which naturalisation was offered by a country of first asylum as a solution to decades in exile.

    In 2017, the governments of Tanzania, Burundi, and UNHCR agreed to assist refugees who wish to voluntarily repatriate from Tanzania to Burundi. Both governments and UNHCR agreed to uphold the principle of voluntariness, and noted that while some refugees may opt to return, others will continue to be in need of international protection. More than 70,000 refugees have returned since the exercise began in September 2017.

    Resettlement continues to be used as a protection tool for refugees. In June 2015, Tanzania embarked on a five year Group Resettlement Programme aimed at resettling approximately 33,000 Congolese refugees to the USA. Since 2012, over 20,000 individuals have departed to the USA, Australia, and Canada. Tanzania is currently the largest resettlement country for the USA worldwide.

    UNHCR works primarily with the Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA), its direct government counterpart in Tanzania, and maintains partnerships critical to effective operations with other Government entities and NGO partners.

    UNHCR works closely with other UN agencies through the UN Reform, Delivering as One initiative and participates in the UN Development Assistance Plan (UNDAP II) 2016-2021, under the Resilience Thematic Results Group. UNHCR also supports the United Nations Kigoma Joint Programme, an area-based programme with an increased focus on supporting host communities and strengthening the link between humanitarian and development initiatives in the region.

       Situations related to this Country
    • Tanzania (United Republic of) - Burundi Situation

      Over 300,000 refugees have fled Burundi to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda since April 2015. The situation in Burundi remains complex; while refugees continue to arrive throughout the region, others are deciding to return home. The Burundi refugee response remains one of the most underfunding refugee situations in the world.

    • Tanzania (United Republic of) - DRC Situation

      The on-going conflicts in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) have caused and continue to cause internal and external displacement of populations. In 2017, some 100,000 Congolese fled to neighbouring countries as refugees, due to widespread militia activities, unrest and violence, joining the 585,000 already in exile. The security conditions in DRC, especially in the eastern and central parts have continued to worsen since the beginning of 2018. Because of this, the Congolese refugee population is now among the ten largest in the world. Nearly 55 per cent are children, many crossing borders unaccompanied or separated. Existing camps and sites in many asylum countries are saturated, and available basic services are stretched to the limit. The situation requires support, adequate resources and collaboration so that effective protection and assistance can be delivered efficiently to Congolese refugees.

    • Tanzania (United Republic of) - Regional Bureau for the East and Horn of Africa, and the Great Lakes Region

      In September 2019, with the aim of bringing decision making closer to the point of delivery, UNHCR opened its Regional Bureau for the East, Horn of Africa and Great Lakes Region (EHAGL). It is located in Nairobi, Kenya and covers 11 operations: Burundi, Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda. Within the EHAGL region, two situations are managed by the Bureau: the South Sudan Regional Refugee Situation and the Burundi Regional Refugee Situation. The Bureau has accountability for strategic decision-making, regional prioritization, oversight of integrity issues, and quality assurance, and possesses the technical capacity to support country operations in a wide range of sectors such as education, child protection, economic inclusion and durable solutions.
