Do I Need a Visa to Visit Gabon?
Canadian citizens using a Canadian passport need a visa to visit Gabon.
Nationals of all countries need a visa.
Gabon has launched an E-VISA system which allows Canadians and almsot every otehr nationality to apply for a e-Visa. Processing takes 3 to 10 working days. Canadians will get their visas stamped into their passports upon arrival at the main international airport in Libreville. This is done without having to send in your passport. The visa is valid for single or multiple entries for a period of between 1 and 180 days. Everything is done on-line.
The button below will take you to the special VSC forms which will help you get a Gabon e-VISA with our assistance. You email us the forms and a scan of your passport and a scan of your ID photo - we apply to the Gabon government on your behalf - and then you receive the e-Visa by email in as little as three days. And you get to keep your passport at home. Do not apply until you are within 30 days of arrival in Gabon. The visa fee for Canadians is paid in Euros cash at the airport in Gabon only. The service fee is paid in Canada. You must take the original of the passport photograph with you to Gabon along with your forms and your real passport.
