Does Mauritania require a visa for children travelling with their parents? Does it matter if the children have separate passports? Does it matter if the children are registered in their parents' passport?

The Islamic Republic of Mauritania makes no apparent exclusions to its comprehensive visa policy, per its London Embassy visa information:

Please note that all types of visas for all nationalities are now obtainable on arrival at Nouakchott airport and at the border.

Visitors need to ensure they comply with the following requirements:

  • Passports must be valid for at least 6 months.
  • Invitation letter for business travellers.
  • Hotel booking and or letter from Mauritanian host.

The page also lists visa fees, according to country of origin and length of stay.

As not all of its 34 embassies and 25 consulates have email contact, you may want to send an enquiry to London [email protected] for clarification in advance of travels.
