1. When is the best time to apply for my Guinea Bissau visa? The best time to apply for your Guinea Bissau visa is 1-2 months before your travel date.
  2. Do I have to send you my passport to get a Guinea Bissau visa? Is it safe to send a passport? You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it. The Guinea Bissau visa is stamped on your passport and will become one of your passport pages. Visa requests cannot be processed without your original passport. Because of the importance of your passport, we strongly suggest that you send your application and passport to CIBTvisas in a secure way, using a traceable courier such as FedEx, UPS, Express Mail or Certified Mail.

 

 

Business Visa Application Requirements for a Guinea Bissau Visa

  1. Special Instructions

    ENTRY/EXIT REQUIREMENTS: A valid passport, visa, and proof of onward/return ticket are required.  The Bissau-Guinean Embassy in Washington, D.C. remains temporarily closed.  The Embassy of Guinea-Bissau does not have a web site.  Due to lack of consular representation in the U.S., it is difficult to obtain the required visa for entry into Guinea-Bissau.  Since most flights destined for Guinea-Bissau must pass through Dakar, Senegal or Lisbon, Portugal, most travelers are able to apply for visas at the Bissau-Guinean embassies in those countries.  Although it is possible to obtain a visa upon arrival in Bissau if arrangements are made in advance, there are no clear instructions for how to make those arrangements.
