Mauretanian visa in Casa
 
I haven't followed the Atlantic route topics for 2 years so forgive me if U find my questions a bit outdated although I tried to browse the forum beforehand. Last I remember it was Impossible to obtain Mauri visa neither in Paris, Madrid, nor Rabat without return air ticket & we were made to stay in Morocco. Is it so easy to get it nowadays in Casa? what are the formailities & costs? I'm a polish passaport holder, does it make any difference to the Mauris? I'll be travelling after the 1th of May so actually with a a EU pass.
Is my dream of hitching from Tidjikja to Oualata via tichit feasible in mid May?any tourist there @ that time (everelse?)

It was very easy to get Mauri visas in Casa. Show up at 9am and pick up at noon. No forwarding ticket required.

good luck

here in madrid you can obtain the visa without problems but it cost 54E, by what i´ve read it seems to be cheaper in casablanca

I had to go through the process at Casablanca twice, it was 10 Euros/100 Dirhams before Christmas, then went up to 20 Euros/200 Dirams. No interview, just fill out a form, two photos, photocopies of the information pages of your passport (theres a photocopy booth down the road), and wait. One possible problem is that they dont give you more than a month from the date of issue. Since we where cycling down we did have to chat with the consul to give us more time than that.
