Hi Javier,

I think you do need a visa before you arrive at the airport. I've been living in Brazzaville for 10 months and I've never heard of anyone getting a visa at the airport. Even when you arrive with a valid visa they can sometimes cause trouble if you haven't got a letter of invitation.

Best, John

Whoa! You're making me a bit worried here.

So is it a problem to get into Brazavile from, say, Gabon without an invite? I'm going down the westcoast starting November and this is definately news to me.

Hi. No need to worry at all. you get the Gabones Visa in Yaounde in 24 hours and a smile
In Gabon They don't ask for any invitation leter at all .

In Congo , you can get your Visa in the border . (*I mean the Gabonese or the Zairesse (?) border ) . That's a fact . 35 Euros on the spot .

My only doubt was if someone can get the Visa upon arrival in the airport .

to John:

Thanks John . Are you actually in BRazzaville ? If so Id need a small little favour from you - It won't take long- . ( which will be generously compensated by dozens of bottles of "Kgog-Croc" when I arrive (December )

My email address is Madrid_Capetown (at) Hotmail (dot) Com

Thanks a lot !
Javier
