1. When is the best time to apply for my Mauritania visa? The best time to apply for your Mauritania visa is 1-2 months before your travel date.
  2. Do I have to send you my passport to get a Mauritania visa? Is it safe to send a passport? You will need to send your actual passport, not a copy of it. The Mauritania 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 Mauritania Visa

  1. Personal Appearance

    The consulate requires travelers to apply directly and a personal appearance may be necessary to obtain your visa.  We recommend that you contact the consulate to obtain the most current forms and requirements before making a personal appearance at the consulate. Many consulates require an application appointment. Please contact:

    The Embassy of Mauritania
    2129 Leroy Pl NW,
    Washington, DC 20008
    Telephone: (202) 232-5700

    It is important to note that most consulates and embassies are only open to the public during the morning hours. Please take these hours into consideration when contacting the consulate about your visa application.

  2. Visa Upon Arrival

    A visa may also be obtained on arrival at the international airport in Nouakchott, Mauritania. Fees vary and immigration officials hold the right to refuse entry to anyone for any reason. We strongly recommend that you obtain your visa prior to departure. Should you choose to obtain your visa upon arrival, you will need to inquire with your airline if boarding is allowed without a visa.
