The Sultanate’s Embassy in Dar es Salam has notified people planning to visit Tanzania that plastic bags are now prohibited in the African country.

Starting from 1st June 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, as per the Tanzanian government.

However, the law excludes plastic packaging for medical services, industrial and construction products, agricultural sector, foodstuff, sanitary and waste management.

“Special desks will be designated at all entry points for the surrender of plastic carrier bags,” the government said in a statement.
