Will your next trip take you to Mali? A Mali visa is required for travel to Mali. Along with obtaining a Mali visa, you will need to ensure that your current passport is up to date before traveling to avoid any complications.
To begin, you must submit a Mali visa application form, your signed United States passport with at least six months remaining validity, two approved passport photographs, an itinerary or program for your trip, and proof of yellow fever vaccination. Additionally, you must provide a copy of your hotel reservations that include the visa applicant’s name, or if staying with family or friends, a notarized letter of invitation from them.
If you are on business, all of the above, as well as a business letter, should be provided. An applicant’s business letter should introduce the applicant, describe the business to be conducted, and detail the type of visa and length of preferred validity. And at last, you must demonstrate in the business letter that you have sufficient funds to cover your travel expenses. Write the letter on the company letterhead, where you are employed.
You can obtain a visa at Mali’s airport but expect delays due to heavy traffic. We strongly advise you to obtain your Mali visa before departing on your trip.
