Latest Check-Ins

We just were refused the visa, no bribing or arguing worked out. They said only for Senegalese anymore and for foreigners only e visa but that only works when flying in. We will try in Bissau.

They didn't give me the Visa (Canadian passport) because I'm not a resident of Senegal. I don't think they were looking for bribes. I asked if there was no way to get it here and the lady said no.

Open from 10 until 16:00. Pause from 13 to 14:00. Must use paints (no shorts) and shoes, like a adult/monsieur.

indeed 85k CFA for the Visa, because not Senegalese resident. Sounds like a rip off to me, maybe someone keeps the money for themselves. had to take it though :-(

Sadly quite unhelpful and unfriendly staff.
Was a hassle just to get information on the documents needed.
Finally had the info but they sent us away and asked to come on Monday to apply.
They requested 85000 FCFA per person (!). There was an official document with prices, should be 33000 (2014, updated 38000 in 2018) for short stay/tourism. The 85000 are for “urgent applications” or non resident or people driving a car (never one straight reason), one guy told us it’s an informal rule for people transiting by car and not the real fees.
Left without applying as they would not go down on the price

Needed:
picture
yellow fever copy
passport copy
said you needed hotel booking but we didn't have any
letter explaining your trip.

They say they only issue visas to residents of Senegal, but we explained that we were driving and did not know what our date of entry would be. We met with the Ambassador, very friendly, explained our trip, and were issued the visa, picked it up the next day.

payable only in CFA, but forgot how much? 30,000 I think? could be wrong though.
