Visa Process

Participants holding a national passport from an ECOWAS country are required to present a valid passport with a minimum of 6 months, valid COVID-19 vaccination AND yellow fever certificate. All Non- ECOWAS participants will require a SINGLE ENTRY VISA, a passport that is valid for a minimum of 6 months from the time of arrival to Liberia, a valid COVID-19 vaccination AND Yellow Fever certificate.
