Visas for West Africa (Where from?)
Hi, We will be Driving from the UK down the West side of Africa starting early 2009. I am hoping to get some info on where are the best places to get visas for each country on the way down. The order of countries are:
The Gambia
Burkina Faso

Any help would be great, Thanks

For RIM a transit visa is available at the border, but it is easier to stop in Rabat and collect both RIM and Mali visas.

Senegal - you can get the visa in Nouakchott, although for EU / US citizens I believe it is available at the border. With an Australian passport, I had to get it in Nouakchott.

Gambia is at the border.

Burkina Faso at the border.

Ghana is easily obtainable - consulate in Bamako was helpful for issuing a visa with 9 month validity.

Togo - 7 day transit at the border

Havent made it to the rest yet.

EU citizens don't need a visa for Senegal
