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