Guinea e Visa: More information
Guinea, like most countries, requires foreigners to have a valid visa before arriving in its territory. Fortunately, this visa can be arranged online, avoiding having to go to the embassy. The Guinea eVisa is valid for 90 days, and allows a single entry for tourism or business purposes.
In the case of the transit or transhipment eVisa, you will be allowed to stay in Guinea for a maximum of 5 days, regardless of whether you arrive by plane or by boat.
The only countries that are exempt from applying for a visa are African countries that are neighbours of Guinea. Other foreign nationalities cannot enter the country without a valid visa.
However, the government reserves the right of admission, so if you lie when filling out the application, or omit information that could represent a threat to the country, they can deny entry, even if the visa has been approved.
