IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Benin has introduced an E-Visa program that will significantly cut down on processing times.
What does the change mean? The program is open to “any foreigner wishing to visit the Republic of Benin” for business, tourism or transit. Applicants may apply for 30- or 90-day visas, the validity calculated from the date of issuance.
BAL Analysis: The E-Visa program will ease travel procedures for foreign nationals. Applicants will need to determine whether they want to obtain a Business E-Visa, Tourism E-Visa or Transit E-Visa, and BAL will be able to assist travelers in determining which option is best for them. Because visa validity is timed to the date of issuance and because of the quick turnaround time, applicants may wish to apply for their visas relatively close to their anticipated travel.
