How to get Guinea Visa in Bissau Guinea Bissau

Bissau is a small capital by any means, so if you are travelling through, then getting your Guinea visa here is your best option.

The consulate here is downtown, so it’s probably only a short walk from many of these recommended hotels. We arrived on Tuesday morning and lodged our request for a visa.

Some travellers who applied in Dakar were advised that the cost of the Guinea visa here in Bissau is much lower as it is CFA 50,000 (about $86) in Dakar.

Only cash is accepted here. We did not need a copy of our Guinea-Bissau visa (we read this somewhere else that it was required).

The man at the consulate was friendly. He doesn’t speak English, only French or Portuguese.

Multi-entry visas are available. We returned at 12.30 pm and our Guinea Visa was ready.

We applied with Australian and EU passports.
