Senegal visa and passport requirements vary from country to country. The good news is that most people can travel to Senegal with a visa that is easy to acquire before arrival.

Travelers from most countries can obtain a Senegal visa through a third party website. All you have to do is fill out your personal information and pay a fee via credit card. Once you’ve done so, you will receive a PDF with a scannable code on it. Print out the PDF document and bring it with you to Senegal. When you arrive, hand the paper to the border officials, who will then stamp your visa into your passport.

Regardless of whether you need a visa for Senegal, you should get a Yellow Fever vaccination before you travel.

Remember that Senegal visa and passport requirements are subject to change at any time. For the most up-to-date information, check your country’s Senegal consulate website.
