According to various sources, Senegal has totally scrapped its visa requirements. Is this applicable to ALL countries though? I have an Angolan passport. If I look at the visa policy for Senegal, it shows Angola as grey though, but doesn't say what happens if you fall in the grey zone. It then adds: "Passengers with proof of accommodation can obtain a visa on arrival for a maximum stay of 30 days." (which got me wondering if this would then apply to my nationality).

Does anyone know whether I can obtain a visa on arrival at Dakar airport with the Angolan passport? (Note: there doesn't seem to be a consulate where I reside and the evisa has been scrapped).

  • The Wiki map shows green for those who can enter visa free, and grey for those who require a visa. – Giorgio Jun 10 '18 at 15:04

    @Giorgio but is it a visa you get on arrival or not?? – Sergio Jun 10 '18 at 15:06
  • Not according to Timatic, the system used by airlines. The links to the official online visa systems seems to be broken. If you'll say where you're located, I'll look for a consulate, or try to find a visa service. (And it appears that all travellers there require a yellow fever vaccination, btw.) – Giorgio Jun 10 '18 at 15:09
  • @Giorgio I currently reside in Kinshasa, DRC. I do have yellow vaccination. – Sergio Jun 10 '18 at 15:11

    Thanks for the timatic response @Giorgio. Doesn't the following line mean I can obtain the visa on arrival though? ===> "Passengers with an official invitation letter issued by a Senegalese Authority to participants of international events or a proof of accommodation can obtain a visa on arrival for a maximum stay of 30 days." – Sergio Jun 10 '18 at 16:11

Courtesy of Emirates web site sharing of the Timatic tool, the information used by airlines for passenger entry requirements, you would require a visa (Angola passport holder, living in DR Congo):

Destination - Senegal (SN)

Passport
Passport required.

Document Validity:
Passports and other documents accepted for entry must be valid for a minimum of 3 months from the arrival date. Visa
Visa required.

Visa Issuance:
Passengers with an official invitation letter issued by a Senegalese Authority to participants of international events or a proof of accommodation can obtain a visa on arrival for a maximum stay of 30 days.
Warning:
Visa required visitors not holding return/onward tickets could be refused entry.

There is a Senegalese Honorary Consulate General in Kinshasa:

4270 bis av. Du Progrès, Barumbu
Kinshasa

According to Embassy Pages, it is the only Senegalese representation in Democratic Republic Congo.
