A valid passport, immunization records, and proof of yellow fever vaccine are required for all U.S. citizens traveling to Cameroon. Travelers must fill out two original visa application forms and one copy to receive a visa. Processing delays may occur if all information on the application forms is incorrect. Travelers must also provide two 2×2-color passport images with a white or plain backdrop, in addition to the application forms. A letter of invitation to Cameroon, evidence of a departure, and proof of sufficient cash are also necessary.
Dual citizenship is not recognized in Cameroon, thus travelers should be aware of this. As a result, citizens of the United States who were born in Cameroon must also get a visa before entering the nation. The Embassy of Cameroon decides on whether or not to grant the desired visa duration.
Cameroon Visa – Single or Multiple Entry
Single-entry and multiple-entry visas are available for Cameroon. Those who plan to visit the country more than once in a specific time period should apply for a multiple entry visa.
Visas usually take seven days to process. To avoid any processing delays, travelers should apply for their visas as soon as possible. This ensures that visitors to Cameroon have a valid visa before departure. Visitors must enter the nation within 90 days of receiving their visas after they have been processed.
