The easiest African countries to get a visa

We recently interviewed our globe-trotter, Michael Zervos, about his record-breaking journey around the world. We have written several articles covering his recent travels through Africa. Among these is an article on visas for Africa, highlighting which countries offer the most convenient entry options.

After further questioning and insights from our experienced product team, we gathered some extra information that we thought was super important to share about the easiest visas for Africa and how to get yours.

We used 3rd party companies to help us obtain some of the visas we don't offer and needed to dig deeper to understand the processes.

1. Niger

“The entire process was done through the VFS platform. All documents were uploaded through the platform, and we only had to send the passport to get the visa stamped inside. The process was guided, and the communication with VFS was very good and efficient.”

2. Democratic Republic of the Congo

“This was a visa that we initially did not have in our plans because it was going to be processed by Untamed Borders, another agency helping Michael, but in the end, they could not process this visa. Therefore, it was a last-minute process; by email, they answered all our questions very quickly, and the visa processing with them was extremely fast, with only 1 day turnaround, and it took us a total of 3 days to receive the visa counting the passport shipping time.”

3. Gabon

“Although the process was easy, communication with the embassy was complex, because they did not answer emails or phone calls. In total, the visa took 6 business days to arrive.”

  • These were the easiest visas for Africa to process because Michael didn't have to go directly to the embassy, take biometrics, or attend an interview for these three guided visas.

  • His passport was sent by mail, the visa requirements were easy to meet, and the most complex documents were some cover letters that Michael and I wrote together.

For a hassle-free trip, use our Visa Checker Tool to easily determine which visa you can apply for with us.
