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:
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
Thanks Matt, this is really useful especially from someone that is doing it now. Anymore info you can find out on the way down would be great. Thanks again.
