How to Get a Transit Visa for Gabon

Gabon Transit Visa

Gabon Transit Visa

Are you transiting through Gabon on your way to somewhere else?  You will need to get a transit visa.  I personally do not recommend this route, and actually recommend that you get the Tourist Visa for Gabon given that the hassle is the same for both visa types.  The benefit of getting the Tourist Visa for Gabon though is that it will be valid for up to 5 years for multiple entries (if you are a U.S. citizen).

Probably the biggest hurdle for getting the Transit Visa for Gabon is that you will need to get a visa to your onward destination FIRST.

Go to my Gabon visa page for information on other types of visas for Gabon.
