The VTE is SINGLE entry, I wanted a multiple entry to keep crossing the Benin/Togo borders but had to make do, a multiple entry VTE doesn't exist anywhere apparently (friend tried to get the same in Dubai & ended up with single only). I think it's a 3 month visa - need to check that!
It was widely recognised, the Ghanaians didn't recognise it and wondered why we were heading to Burkina without a Burkina visa ... Ghana is a bit of a nightmare with anything official!!!
None of the borders gave us any hassle, including the 'rare' (hardly sees any foreigners apparently!) Boukoumbe (Benin) - Nadoba (Togo) which would be a great border to do on a bike coming from Natitingou, stunning countryside & 'good' piste. If you're heading from the Benin side you need to continue to Kande (or Kante it was sometimes signed as) to get your passport stamped BUT check in with the gendarme on the edge of Nadoba - he'll wave you on but does like to see passports.
Have a good one!
