Sao Tome and Principe Visa Requirements

Currently, we do not have the exact information to obtain visas from Sao Tome, but we will provide you with the documentation that is usually requested. For a tourist visa, complete a Sao Tome visa application form, your signed United States passport with a minimum of 6 months validity, (2) approved passport photographs, an itinerary of your trip, and proof of a yellow fever vaccination.

Also, you should present a copy of your hotel reservations with the applicant’s name on the reservation for the hotel, or if staying with family or friends a notarized letter of invitation from them is required. For a business visa, the documents that are typically asked of the applicant are everything mentioned for a tourist visa plus a business letter or invitation. A business invitation should entail a description of the applicant, the type of business that will be taking place on the trip, and state the type of visa and preferred validity length.

The same will apply for a business letter with one more condition. You will have to prove adequate funds for your traveling purposes with a business letter. Both the letter and invitation should be written on the company’s letterhead that you are currently employed with.
