Latest Check-Ins

We were in the consulat this morning.
French and spanish passports.
Now, they asked 150 000fcfa for 3 months visa, multiple entry. Impossible to obtain less.
2 days of delay.
You need to bring :
- copy of the Benin visa
- copy of your passport
- 2 pictures
- copy of your hotel reservation
- copy of your flight ticket (even if you enter by road : you had to go to a travel agency and to reserve a flight ticket!)

we didn't make the visa here, just to share these bad news!!!

250$ for a Visa of 3 months. Impossible to have a Visa of 1 month. It is the only Visa they can make here. You need a flight ticket. So we didnt make here but in Lagos in Nigéria.

update!! Got our visa as promised 2 days later. there is a note at the Visa, "50.000,- CFA paid" - but we paid 75.000,-..... Good luck!!

75.000,- CFA for Austrian passports. Lady is not very friendly, but after some time we get 3 days processing time instead of 5 days...

Don't believe all the Infos in iOverlander. This is the right new location of the consulate.
The coordinates indicated in other posts are the ones of the old location that is closed today.

This place is in wrong location - it is located at 6.36289, 2.39884

This place is in wrong location - it is located at 6.38502, 2.40167

They advised us to get the visa of Cameroon in Lagos. When we asked them whether we could go overland their answer was no you can take a flight from Lagos. Our initial plan to ship our car to Douala and continue overland from there is not possible they said due to safety issues. For a visa you need now a legalised invitation letter from Cameroon, good luck. We decided to ship our car through Lome - Douala roro and fly ourselves to Douala. The south of Cameroon should be no problem, we hope.

We talk a lot to the Consule and his brother, but the result ist : NOW VISA to getting on the road to Cameroon! He told us a lot, about the president and, and ..... If somebody need a update MR. Hernriy Mon Go, phone +229 625 88289 like to be present and let you know about the aktuell situation.

Easy application but expensive and takes time.
One month single entry 50’000 cfa
Express fee 48h 50’000
Express express fee next day in the evening another 25’000 cfa
3 month multiple entry is 100’000
So if you decide the full package it would be 175’000... which i didn’t do.
They can’t do it on the spot because they have to get the signature elsewhere. I thing Lagos.

they explained that when you go overland then you only get a 3-months visa for 150.000cfa. when you take a flight into cameroon you get a 30days visa for 75.000cfa. this is because of safety reasons. we were told that you can get the cameroon visa now in lagos, abuja and calabar. ON YOUR OWN RISK, this is only what they told us at the consulate
