The Student Visa for Cameroon is for people traveling to Cameroon to study.  The process for getting this visa is fairly straight-forward. The only real hurdle is that you have to get an acceptance letter or admission certificate issued by school officials in Cameroon

Below I will tell you all you need to know about how to get a Cameroon Student Visa.

Visa required for U.S. citizens before you go to Cameroon:  Yes, a valid passport, visa, evidence of yellow-fever vaccination, and current immunization records are required for entry into Cameroon.

Visa required for non-U.S. citizens:  Yes, as stated here, the only people who don’t need visas to Cameroon are as nationals of Mali, Chad, Central African Republic, and Nigeria.
