Guinea Bissau Visa –  How To Apply For A Guinea Bissauan Visa

Will you be traveling to Guinea Bissau in the near future? You will need to obtain a Guinea Bissau visa, either a business visa or a tourist visa in order to visit. We recommend that you gather all necessary documentation before applying for your visa.

Currently, we do not provide any services that will allow you to obtain a Guinea Bissau Visa. However, you should meet these guidelines prior to the obtaining of your visa to travel to Guinea Bissau.

Check passport validity – All travelers to Guinea Bissau will need a passport that is valid for at least 90 days after they depart Guinea Bissau. The ideal amount of validity time that should be left on your passport when you depart a country should be roughly 6 months. If your passport has at least 6 months validity left, then you will be able to travel to neighboring countries without issues.

Blank visa pages – Guinea Bissau, along with many other countries, require at least two blank visa pages in your passport book when you arrive and depart Guinea Bissau. This will permit any necessary stamps that will need to be stamped in your passport during your travel.

NOTE: Due to the absence of Guinea Bissau Consular representation in the United States, it will be very difficult for travelers to Guinea Bissau to obtain a visa. Majority of flights going to Guinea Bissau will pass through Portugal, Senegal and other countries where you can apply for a visa at the Guinea Bissau Embassy located in those countries.
