Visa Requirements for Sao Tome and Principe

To apply for a tourist visa in Sao Tome, you must submit a completed Sao Tome visa application form, your signed United States passport with a minimum six-month validity, two approved passport photos, a trip itinerary, and proof of yellow fever vaccination.

Additionally, you must present a copy of your hotel reservations that include the applicant’s name, or if staying with family or friends, a notarized letter of invitation from them. The documents required for a business visa are typically the same as those required for a tourist visa, plus a business letter or invitation. A business invitation should include information about the applicant, the type of business that will be conducted during the trip, as well as the type of visa and preferred validity period.

The same is true for a business letter, except for one more condition. A business letter will be required to demonstrate sufficient funds for your travel needs. Use company letterhead for business letters.
