Electronic tourist visa to Burkina Faso

Burkina Faso is a country full of colorful traditions and friendly people who will be happy to welcome tourists and show them their unique way of life. To travel to the country as a tourist, foreign nationals need to apply for a visa. More recently, Burkina Faso has introduced an e-visa system to simplify the visa process and save time for travelers.
