Embassy of Guinea-Bissau in Ziginchor, Senegal

Guinea-Bissau Visa was by far the easiest and quickest visa to get in West Africa. There is a Guinea-Bissau embassy in Dakar that issues the visa in just a day for CFA45,000 (about $78) but we heard Ziginchor might be a cheaper option.

We arrived at the consulate around 10 am as we were travelling through from Cap Skirring. The consulate is only a few blocks away from the station “gare-routiere” so you can walk here from there.

There was no application, we simply handed over our passport photos and paid for our Guinea-Bissau visa sticker. The visa was issued on the spot, it took about 5 minutes and we were on our way to get to Guinea-Bissau the same day.

We hold Australian and EU passports. Check if you need a visa here: Visa Policy for Guinea-Bissau Visa

What you will need to get Guinea-Bissau Visa in Ziginchor:

  • 1 Passport Photo
  • No application form needed
  • A fee of 20,000 CFA (about $35) paid in cash
  • Photocopy of your passport

Location: Address: Consulate of Guinea Bissau,  Near John Paul II roundabout, Ziguinchor

The location is correct in maps.me app and only 10 minutes walk from the gare routiere – station.

You can probably get a cab here for CFA 500 ($1) if you need to. There were no opening hours at the consulate, so not sure about this. My advice is to try to get here in the morning.
