Visa Mauritanië

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me if I should buy my visa for Mauritanië at the border Morrocco-Mauritanie or should I buy it in advance in Europe?

Hi Carl,
We crossed in December last year. My sister and i went to great lengths to get ours in advance, but the guys we were traveling with just rocked up at the border and got theirs within the hour for less than we paid to get them in Germany.
Would be worth checking if anyone has any more recent experiences, but if nothing has changed its much easier and cheaper at the border

Good luck and enjoy
Sam

How long do you want to be in Mauritania for, and is it one-way or return?

A single entry visa costs €10 at the Western Sahara/RIM border and gives you three days to transit the country. It appears you can extend this three days in Nouakchott, search the HUBB for details.

If you are going on to Mali or Sénégal and then want to return you need to get another transit visa and you cannot obtain this on all crossing points. For example, the Diama piste from Sénégal into Mauritania can only be crossed on a multiple entry visa, so you would need to go via Rosso instread. I seem to remember the visa was €20 at Rosso.
