US passport holders can stay up to 180 days without a visa; however, you must have a valid passport with at least 1 blank visa page. It is strongly recommended that you bring your international vaccination card as many countries in Africa require that you show it upon entry, especially showing vaccination for Yellow Fever. Please reference the State Department Website for recent changes in travel requirements and other travel information.
US Passport Holder Travel Requirements
Your nationality, purpose of visit, length of visit, and number of desired entries effect whether or not you need a visa to this country. Swift does not store all possible combinations of passport and visa requirements, but we are happy to research whether or not you need a visa and what the requirements are if you do need a visa. We do this by visiting a consulate website, going to the actual consulate, or calling the consulate for more information. If you would like us to research visa requirements for you, please fill out the Research Request Form, and a Swift representative will contact you within 24-48 hours with an answer to your inquiry. If at all possible, we will get back to you in the same day. Research requests are $15/request.
