Preparations: before you go



For West Africa, a passport valid for more than six months after the planned return is mandatory.



Anyone who is not a national of a country in West Africa needs a visa to visit Togo.
You must go to the Embassy of Togo, equipped with:

  • round-trip airfare (or proof of rsservation)
  • passport
  • 2 ID photos
  • cash (1 month visa = 30 € / 3 months = 50€)
  • This list may vary. Remember to check with the Embassy of Togo.

    A form must be completed on site.

    Togo Embassy (U.S.):  2208 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest,
                                         Washington, DC 20008
                                        Tel : (202) 234-4212


    Vaccines and International Certificate of Vaccination

    Vaccination against yellow fever is mandatory.

    Vaccination against hepatitis B and treatment against malaria are highly recommended. There is no vaccine against malaria. Nevertheless, there are very effective preventive medications prescribed by your doctor.

    The international certificate of vaccination is often required on arrival at airports of African countries. In the U.S., they can be ordered at travel vaccination centers or county public health clinics in your area.



    Rates depend on the period, but it costs about € 900 for the roundtrip ticket Paris / Lomé. It is better to book your ticket in advance. The best solution: consult price comparison sites on the Internet, or sites of airlines (Royal Air Morocco Air France, Afriqiyah Airways). You can also buy your tickets from a travel agency.
