Visa validity: 3 months from start date

Visa valid from: as stated on application

Time taken: About 20 minutes – half an hour including the chatting!

Requirements: 2 passport photos.  The consul had the forms needed.

Process: I phoned in advance to ensure they were open. We arrived and were shown into the consul’s office. We had a nice chat while he completed the application form. He then stamped the passport with three official stamps, and we were done.

 

UPDATE 6 April 2015: Senegal has scrapped visa requirements for foreign visitors and will slash taxes on air fares as it seeks to revive a tourism sector crippled by high costs and a regional Ebola outbreak.

The cost and administrative hassle of visas, coupled with taxes on air tickets, led to a fall in the number of visitors to the country.

The new measure on visa-free travel will come into effect on May 1, 2015, President Macky Sall said in an address to the nation late on Friday.
