Required Documents to Apply
Equatorial Guinea is a small country in Central Africa and consists of two parts: the mainland, and the islands. It is one of the most significant oil producers in the sub-Saharan, and is in the midst of an economic boom. Tourists should be aware that Equatorial Guinea is known to have severe issues with corruption, so it's best to stay in touristy spots, especially those around the fantastic beaches.
Before you plan your trip to Equatorial Guinea, you should do some research on its visa policy. There are only 8 countries whose citizens can travel to Equatorial Guinea visa-free, so chances are, you'll need to visit the embassy and apply for a visa in-person. This process may be tedious, but it's currently your only option. Visas on arrival are not available, let alone electronic visas.
To find out whether or not you need a visa for Equatorial Guinea, you can take a look at its visa policy, or you could use iVisa’s Visa Checker Tool. Simply select your nationality from the drag-down menu and choose Equatorial Guinea as your destination. If you don't need a visa, Bon Voyage! If you do - and you likely will - we provide a list of the embassies you can use to apply.
As you can imagine, since electronic visas are not available for Equatorial Guinea, we cannot help with processing visa applications. Nonetheless, we like to help in any way we can, which is why we offer a free 24/7 support service.
Before going to the embassy to submit your Equatorial Guinea visa application, you should see if you meet all the specific requirements. You can find them online, but we recommend you to call the diplomatic mission itself since they will provide you with the most reliable information. Private websites are not always up-to-date, leading to critical visa application errors. Nevertheless, what iVisa can say is that you'll need a passport valid for at least 6 months beyond the date of arrival in Equatorial Guinea. You should also pay a visit to your doctor and request malaria tablets since it is a common and deadly illness in the nation. For further information, contact the nearest embassy of Equatorial Guinea.
While we cannot process the visa application for Equatorial Guinea at the moment, hopefully its government will adopt the electronic visa system soon. Until then, we hope that the above information offers a helpful start.
