Visa on Arrival Kili Airport, Arusha, Tanzania

edited November 2011 in - East Africa
Is it possible to get a visa on arrival at Kilimanjaro Airport in Arusha, Tanzania? I'm a South African citizen and student travelling to Tanzania for a law conference and competition with two colleagues. We were advised to get the visa's beforehand, however DHL has just lost one of our passports (between the Tanzanian High Commission in Pretoria and my address in Cape Town). So can anyone tell me if it is possible to get a visa on arrival in Tanzania at the airport in Arusha for in a temporary SA passport.
We leave on Friday 11 Nov and so there isn't enough time to get a new passport and visa. Our flights go via Nairobi and not via Dar es Salam - I know it is possible to get a visa on arrival in Dar, but can we get the visa in Arusha rather as we're not flying to Dar?

If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated.
