I assume you are Slovenian and have an EU passport?

If so, on an EU passport there is no need to get a visa in advance for Senegal and you can easily get one on the border with Mauritania (assuming you are coming via the Atlantic route)

cheers

Angry

I got the same info when I called up the Senegalese embassy in London last week:

Visa and Passport

They said it is going to take at least 6 weeks! When I asked if it is the same in Rabat, they said YES.

I carry an Estonian "pre-EU" passport - so I am getting a bit worried that the London-Dakar might turn into London-Bamako instead.

Has anyone from the eastern EU bloc had experience recently on the Senegalese border or getting the visa from Rabat. Would be very interested.

Is this where a "present" may do the thing on the border?

Interesting - I thought the exemption was for all EU countries, so thank you for pointing that out.

If Rabat takes so long, try Nouakchott. I got one there in 24 hours (on Australian passport) in early 2008, so I suspect it should be relatively similar for the EU countries that don't automatically qualify for the exemption.

cheers

Lightbulb 6 weeks for Senegalese visa is wrong info

There is a lot of confusion with this issue, partly because the official information is confusing, misleading, etc.

The easiest way to obtain Senegalese visa is to enroll online:
http://www.visasenegal.sn/en/

Ignore the "6-week" thing.

You will be requested to pay online. Do so. You will get a ... a PDF file, which you'll have to print out. From this point on, the rest is routine. You just need a Senegalese facility equipped with a fancy device that takes your photo and two fingerprint scans at a time.

So, if there is a Senegalese embassy in the neighbourhood, visit it with 2 passport photos and the aforementioned printout. I've got my visa in Berlin in about half an hour. Plus waiting for the embassy clerks, who were late - another 20 minutes.

The embassy employees are anything but punctual, they pick the phone only if they feel like it, but otherwise they are friendly, easy-going chaps to my impression.

It's still a hell of a lot easier to enter Senegal as a EU citizen than it is for a Senegalese to get a visa for Europe.

Travel safe,
