Question Temporary import permit / passevant / laissez-passe Morocco to Ghana

I'm going Morocco, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Togo and Benin.
For those that have been in these countries without Carnets, can you tell me how much the passevant was?

As I understand it is possible to go that route without carnet and to much trouble at the borders. Anyone got refused to enter any of these countries because of no carnet?

Cheers

When are you going, I'm doing almost identical trip... without a carnet too... leaving the UK 10th March!... TBH I'm just going to wing it and see how it goes with laissez-passe's and some persuasion if required.

Same Route

Same route asmyself almost, Leaving the middle of september,From what i've read the passevant etc could be as little as $20 per country.

Be good to hear how you got on MetusUK seeing as your leaving a few months before me. How long are you taking to do it aswell.

Im just hoping and praying nothing changes between now and then (I.E carnet required) Or im scupered !!!.

Darren.

I have planned my route in such a way that if time gets tight the 'loop' can just be 'shortened' but hopefully there won't be a need, I can only ever get a maximum of 2 months off of work (by using this years annual leave and next years butted together) so I have 62 days. I'm going to change my shifts on either side so the day before i work a 5am to 1 and return to a late shift, squeezing an extra day out... but thats by the by... as a when i travel to internet cafes i'll post each 'border' drama/non drama for your pleasure
