Guinea e Visa For Tourism

Guinea offers tourists who wish to enjoy the sights and sounds of the country a tourist visa for such trips. Tourist visas are useful for family visits, vacations, touring, or for attending sporting, festivals, and religious events in the country. Once approved, the holder can visit any part of the country they wish and remain for up to 90 days. Also, it can only be used once because it is a single-entry document.

This visa requires a valid passport to stay active throughout your stay in the country. If such is your plan, you must also have a confirmed ticket for the trip back to your country or an onward ticket for a different country. Tourists are also expected to have sufficient funds to cover their travel costs.

Business Visa applicants must submit a completed application form online containing all their travel, personal, and itinerary details. They must also submit information about their business activities and that of their partners in Guinea, if any. Invited guests must also show a business invitation letter forwarded to them by their host, which must contain details about both parties and how long their engagement will last.

Guinea Visa Policy

The official policy of Guinea is that any visitor coming into the country must do so with a visa unless they are from a visa-exempt country. A visa can be obtained in one of three ways; through a Guinean embassy or consulate abroad, at the entry point, or online.

The country also has a visa exemption list for foreigners who qualify under their visa waiver program. 

Persons from selected countries, stateless persons, and refugees may enter Guinea without visas under its laws. Diplomatic passport holders from countries like Zimbabwe, South Africa, China, Russia, and Romania may enter the country without visas, and so do diplomats of Turkey, who can stay in the country for up to 90 days.

Most visa-exempt countries are fellow Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) nations. Under the ECOWAS protocol, citizens of member nations can visit other nations in the bloc without visas and stay for up to 90 days. Such visiting must be for leisure, business, or transit but only for work or any long-term activity lasting up to 3 months.

Visa on Arrival

The visa-on-arrival policy of Guinea remains in force, but only nationals from the UAE qualify for this document for visits lasting up to 90 days. Subsequently, they can also apply for electronic visas (eVisa) in advance.

Guinea e Visa

The Guinean electronic visa or eVisa is an entry document issued online to eligible applicants looking to visit for short trips. This visa is valid for 90 days on average, but US and Canadian citizens can stay in Guinea for up to 5 years because their visas last much longer. E visas are meant for tourism, business, and transit and are issued to persons who meet all the requirements.

The applicant doesn’t have to visit the embassy or consulate abroad; they can complete the form online using their mobile devices or computer. The application processing also takes less time lasting no more than three days before the applicant receives their visa if approved.
