SAO TOME AND PRINCIPE IS OPEN- Sao Tome and Principe re-opened for tourism in July 2020.

Since 2012 visitors to Sao Tome and Principe may also apply online for an e-Visa on Arrival using eVisaST website. An e-Visa can be obtained easily anywhere with an internet connection and it grants the same right to enter Sao Tome and Principe territory as ordinary sticker-visa in the passport. The response has been overwhelming and many travelers have already used this service.

Sao Tome is officially called Sao Tome and Principe, and it is a small island nation off the coast of Central Africa. Its economy relies on cacao production, but this has declined due to drought and mismanagement. However, if you are looking to keep yourself busy, you can visit some of its attractions. On the one hand, its lush rain forests are spectacular, and the way old plantations recovered is beautiful. Furthermore, the Obo National Park is a true tropical paradise. At the same time, let's not forget that Sao Tome is surrounded by water, which means that there are pristine beaches and crystal clear waters everywhere. Therefore, it is perfect for diving.

Travelers visiting Sao Tome and Principe are required to present a negative COVID-19 test result before departure. Unvaccinated travelers must present an antigen test taken within 48 hours or PCR test taken within 72 hours.
