Visa Requirements for Ivorian Citizens
Visa requirements for Ivorian citizens, are regulations put in place by foreign territories that dictate what entry permits Ivory Coast (Côte d’Ivoire) passport holders must have to visit.
According to the Henley Passport Index, as of 2021 an Ivorian passport ranks 92nd in terms of travel freedom. An Ivorian national is able to travel to over 50 destinations without having to apply for a visa in advance.
Each nation has its own visa requirements for Ivorians. These requirements can also differ depending on certain factors, such as the purpose of visit and the duration of time the applicant wishes to stay.
A number of countries offer an online service for citizens of Ivory Coast, which allows them to apply for an electronic visa (eVisa) or electronic visa authorization (eTA). This service is generally the easiest and quickest way to obtain an entry permit.
Some destinations have the option of applying for a visa on arrival. This means starting the visa process once you have arrived at your destination.
Obtaining a visa this way can often cause delays and is not a guaranteed way of being granted entry.
Certain countries or territories require Ivorian nationals to apply for a visa through an embassy or consulate.
This can also be the case if a long-term visa is required, as most electronic travel permits and visas on arrival are for short-term stays.
Finally, some nations have no visa requirements, and allow Ivory Coast passport holders to enter visa-free.
