Foreign visitors must meet the São Tomé and Príncipe visa requirements to be able to obtain an entry permit online.
Whether applying for a São Tomé and Príncipe tourist visa or business visa, travelers will need to provide the following items:
- Passport that will continue to be valid for at least a year
- Current email address
- Method of payment (credit or debit card)
There are no restrictions on the São Tomé and Príncipe e-Visa with regards to nationality.
The purpose of the visit must be business (for example, attending conferences, meetings, or negotiations) or tourism (including holidays, leisure, and visiting family and friends).
Travelers with more than one passport should ensure that they travel with the one that is registered in the e-Visa application, since the e-Visa will be linked to that document.
If the passport is lost, damaged, stolen, or otherwise rendered invalid before the trip to São Tomé and Príncipe, it will be necessary to apply for a new e-Visa using the replacement passport.
