How to Get a Tourist Visa for Gabon

Gabon Tourist Visa

Gabon Tourist Visa

Gabon is a lot like the Central African Republic in the sense that you can really call this country part of “real Africa.” A lot of the highlights are similar as well, including the opportunity to do a gorilla trek or to see forest elephants. In Libreville, Gabon proper, there is not really much to write home about, but there are some cool markets and some OK restaurants (although a touch on the pricey side for my tastes).

I’ll explain to you below how to get a Tourist Visa for Gabon. This type of visa is usually valid for 5 years, enables multiple entries, and allows for a maximum stay of up to 90 days.
