DRC visa Not in Brazaville.....

Ive just spend 3 days and six visits to the DRC embassy in Brazzaville to get a 7 day transit visa, and i had an Angola visa

Theyve just changed the rules and will only issue visas to residents

DRC available in Yaonde 50 000 cfa 2 days

Angola visa in Abuja only, but easy for transit visa 30 dollars 2 days

Thumbs up

That is VERY useful info, sorry you've been held up.

I was planning to get my DRC there in Apr/May, after understanding from other posts that it would be OK provided Angola visa already (from Abuja). So now know I must get sooner - not sure if possible in UK? Or have read elsewhere (can't remembert where) that Libreville possible apart from Yaounde.

Anyone know if possible in Abuja?

Found the DRC embassy in Abuja today - they wanted me to get a Angola visa first. I got the address off the other Congo's embassy when getting a visa there ;-). It is down a back road a little, but find a smart enough taxi driver and ask security guards outside other embassies, not people on the street for directions.

Gabon Enb is hard to find in Abuja, and they want 52,000 Naira for a 48 our service - 250 Euros ;-) so will try in Cameroon.
