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