Canadian passport holders do not require visas to visit Lesotho for stays up to 14 days. Travelers who wish to stay beyond 14 days will have to apply for a short-term permit from Immigration and Passport Services, either at the airport or on Linare Road, Maseru Central (+266 22 323 771). The fee for a temporary permit is reimbursed to the foreigner upon departure. Visitor visas can be extended for a further 30 days beyond the initial 14 days to make a limit total of 44 days. Staying beyond those given 44 days necessitate that the visitor apply for a temporary residence permit. Extension of visas and the issuance of residence permits are only done at the immigration office.
Travelers arriving from countries where this disease is prevalent are required to present a vaccination certificate for yellow fever.
