Visa for Guinea
Under Guinean law, foreign nationals must obtain an electronic visa (eVISA) to enter Guinea. The e-visa entitles you to visit Guinea for a visitor or business visit, tourism, as well as participation in scientific, cultural, socio-political, economic, sporting events and other relevant contacts.
To apply for an e-visa, you need to apply through your personal account on the official website or contact us. The validity period of the visa depends on its category and type and may vary from 3 days to 1 year from the date of its issuance. Depending on the purpose of entry of foreign citizens to Guinea and the purpose of their stay, there are the following types of visas: single entry visa (90 days), long-term visa (1 year), transit visa (up to 3 days), service visa (for service passports), diplomatic visa (for diplomatic passports) and courtesy visa. Visas can be single-entry or multiple-entry.
When crossing the border at Conakry International Airport, foreign nationals are required to present the printed visa information on an A4 sheet to the border guards for scanning the QR code and marking the corresponding marks. The completed machine-readable form will also be required for border control.
You can apply for a visa at our visa center and save time preparing for your trip.
Once your Guinea e-visa application is approved, you will receive an e-mail receipt for your visa-on-arrival registration, which you must carry with you when traveling to Guinea. Upon arrival at Conakry Airport, go to the Visa on Arrival counter where you will be required to provide biometric information. You will also need to have printed copies of all required documents.
Please note that an electronic visa to Guinea, also known as an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA), is not a guarantee of entry into the country. The final decision is made by immigration officers at the airport, who have the right to refuse entry.
