Passport/Visa Note: Visitors require proof of sufficient funds to cover their stay and in addition to a visa, visitors must hold a letter of invitation or a hotel reservation. Visa can only be issued on arrival to those passengers in possession of a letter (Visa Volant) issued by the Ministry of Interior and Security. Visitors not holding visas issued in the country of residence could be refused entry. Visas issued in another country will only be accepted when there is no embassy of Congo (Dem. Rep.) in the country of residence. It is highly recommended that your passport has at least six months validity remaining after your intended date of departure from your travel destination. Immigration officials often apply different rules to those stated by travel agents and official sources.

Note: Passport and visa requirements are liable to change at short notice. Travellers are advised to check their entry requirements with their embassy or consulate.
