Most of the countries require foreign travellers to have a valid visa or a travel authorization. This is true also for Benin which requires a Benin eVisa. You can choose 3 types: 90-Day multi-entry visa, 30-Day single, or multi-entry visa. All of them are online visas and allow tourist or business visits only.
