Senegal has eradicated visa requirements and fees for all foreign nationals on visits of up to 90 days. Business and tourist travelers alike may obtain an entry stamp in their passport free of charge upon arrival with a validity period of 90 days.
Previously, business travelers needed to acquire a visa or electronic authorization prior to traveling to Senegal and also had to pay a government visa fee. The goal of this new policy is to enhance the tourism industry while also aiming to reduce the cost and burden of business travel. Business travelers should benefit from these new procedures but those expecting to conduct work activities or stay beyond 90 days must still apply for a work permit or long-term visa.
