Visa Information

West Africa is known for expensive and difficult-to-obtain visas. Fortunately, we will be visiting countries that have uncomplicated and relatively inexpensive visas. Certain nationalities will not need to get any visas depending on the trip chosen (for example, UK citizens doing the 8-day or 2-week trip from Dakar to Ziguinchor do not require any visa whatsoever).

For nationalities that require a visa for certain countries, we will walk you through the process and explain any costs involved. Visa fees are not included in the cost of the trip.

Regardless of whether or not you need a visa, most countries in West Africa require proof of Yellow Fever vaccination for entry. Please have a look at the Health and Safety page for more on this.
