You will need a valid passport and a visa to travel to Gabon. You will need to apply for a visa in advance prior to entry as visas on arrival are no longer available. Tourist and business visas are issued in the embassy, and can be applied through personal appearance or via mail.
To obtain a Gabonese visa, you will need to furnish the following documents:
- two application forms
- 2 passport photos
- 1 copy of the vaccination certificate for yellow fever
- a company letter endorsing your visit to Gabon (if applying for a business visa)
- a copy of confirmed hotel reservation
- $100 money order, company check, or cash
Should you decide to apply via mail, you will need to include a self-addressed return envelope from these express mail companies: FedEx, UPS, or DHL.
