Latest Check-Ins

Gambia side: very quick passport and CPD stamped. As we wanted to drive to Senegal side, a drug inspector stopped us and checked the entire car foe weed. We found a tiny little piece, smaller then a seed, and we had to go through the whole procedure. He was just searching for seeds or crumbs to get some money off us. After going trough a whole lot of paperwork, we ended up giving him a half broken compact camera and he seemed to be happy with that.

Senegal side: passport and CPD stamped in within 10mins.

Besides the weed detective, nobody asked for money.

Small hut more or less at the entrance of the village after the bridge to the left.
Get my Carnet de Passage stamped after explaining where i entered and left countries before.

He asked something about a stamp i should do in Dakar after i entered through Rosso. Told him nobody explained me that. Was a little bit confusing and im not sure about the sense of that talk.

After the custom there is another small open counter also on the left side. Ckecked my passport.

Anyway got through without paying anything.

We were traveling with 2 Swiss friends, and had already crossed into Senegal from the Mauritania border at Diama. They were not required to have a visa to enter Senegal.

When trying to re-enter Senegal from Gambia, they were told by Senegal immigration that they needed a visa, and tried to send them back to Banjul to the Senegalese embassy. He had an official looking form that showed which countries needed visas. All of our own online research showed that Swiss did not need a visa for Senegal. Eventually after lots of being yelled at by the officials, the immigration made a phone call and stamped them into Senegal. We think he was just waiting for money, but he never asked or hinted, so who knows?
