Visas, visas, visas

Posted from Eindhoven, North Brabant, The Netherlands.
While visas on the East coast of Africa are relatively easy, the West coast can be an absolute nightmare. We have made a list of where we applied for which visa, along with a number of other details (required documents, duration, cost etc.). Download the file here. Here are four valuable tips for visa applications:
- Things change, so always check in advance.
- You normally always need copies of passports and passport photos (preferably with a white background).
- Many embassies refuse to help you because you are not a resident of the country you are in; try to convince them to help; get a letter from your embassy and try to speak to the ambassador if you have to.
- Normally, it is best to already have the visa before you enter the country before the country you want to visit – visa fees are usually higher if you don’t because your destination is close by, lots of business people travel there, and they can just charge you more as you have no choice.
The best of luck to all of you! You’re going to need it…
