We have received inquiries from Tanzanian users on how to withdraw money from Skrill and Neteller because their local banks do not accept transfers. Before opening an account, if you are going to need to transfer money to and from the country (and not leave the money in the digital account), we recommend that you check with your local bank about whether it accepts transfers from these e-Wallets.

If you need to transfer from (and to) bank accounts in Tanzania safely, you may be interested in Wise's international multi-currency bank account (www.wise.com). Wise is a popular multicurrency account from the UK, available to users in Tanzania. Via this platform, you can safely make transfers to and from the country, because it provides you with bank account numbers in Dollars, Euros, Pounds, among other currencies. It even allows you to hold a balance in Shillings.

Why don’t local banks accept Skrill or Neteller transfers?

Because neither Skrill nor Neteller are banking institutions, but digital payment platforms. Therefore, they are not considered as regulated entities by international banking systems (Central Banks, Banking Clearing Entities, etc.), so, they are not subject to the control of national financial services regulators in the same way.
