Benin requires that citizens of most countries obtain a visa to enter. The Beninian Consulate General will determine the duration of stay upon receiving an application.
Business: The Beninian business visa is designed to allow business travelers to come to Benin in order to pursue business activities, such as attending meetings and conferences. However, it excludes holders from seeking employment in Benin.
Tourist: The tourist visa (also known as the ‘visitor visa’ or ‘visit visa’) allows the holder entry to Benin, but strictly forbids travelers from engaging in any work while they are in Benin. Benin tourist visa holders are also not allowed to extend their stay beyond the limits of the visa.
