You must pre-enrol and pay the fee online at www.visasenegal.sn. If your local embassy doesn't have an on-site biometric enrolment service, bring the printed confirmation with you to Senegal. Your biometric data will be taken and your visa issued at Dakar Leopold Sedar Senghor International Airport or other major border crossings. Note that not all airports or land border crossing points can issue visas, so check with your nearest embassy or the website before you travel.
If your local embassy already has the capability to take biometric data (a list of countries is shown on the application website), you can also attend the embassy to pick up your visa.
Allow at least 24 hours for visa processing, though some applications may take longer.
Frequent travellers may request a long-stay visa once they are in Senegal. Contact the Foreigners and Travel Documents Police Department.
