Liberia Visa Policy

Persons coming to Liberia for any reason are required to obtain a visa from any of Liberia’s diplomatic regions before they can enter the country unless they are from visa-exempt countries. Those who wish to speed up the process may apply for a visa on arrival or an electronic visa if they are eligible for either.

Visa Exemption

Liberia’s visa exemption list is dominated by fellow West African countries. The Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is the umbrella economic union in the West African region, and citizens from member states are allowed to visit fellow states without visas. A visa-exempt visitor can stay in Liberia for up to 90 days without being asked to present a visa at the point of entry or throughout their stay in the country.

Visa-exempt visitors are free to visit any part of the country they may wish, but they must work or study with a visa. They are also free to travel to multiple countries in the region without visa requirements.

Apart from fellow West African citizens, South African and Vietnam citizens who hold service and diplomatic passports are exempted from visas. In contrast, Kuwaitis, Chinese, and Turks with diplomatic passports are exempted from visas also. This visa-exempt list is by no means absolute, as it changes from time to time as more countries are added or removed. Visitors are advised to consult the list to ensure their visa-free eligibility.

Note: The visa exempt list is subject to change at any time so always conduct the list before every visit to know your current status. 

Visa On Arrival

One way to obtain a visa to Liberia if you are not from a visa-exempt country is to wait until you reach the entry point to get a visa on arrival. This visa is issued to the applicant through their emails before their arrival. VOA, as it is fondly called, is available to visitors who may not be able to get a visa at any of the Liberian foreign missions, and it is issued for business or any emergency-related activity in Liberia.

This visa may also be issued to a traveler coming from a country with no foreign mission. In such a situation, the carrier bringing the visitor must send a message in advance to the station manager in Monrovia, and a copy of the message must be attached to the traveler’s ticket.

Once the visitor arrives in Liberia, the visa on arrival will be issued, and their passports will be stamped so they can enter the country.

Liberia e Visa

The Liberian electronic visa was introduced to also facilitate the release of visas and to decongest foreign missions abroad. This visa is mainly for short-term tourism, business, or transit visits. E visas are valid for 90 days and start counting from the day you set foot on Liberian soil. You only have to fill out an application form online, attach the required document, pay the application fee and submit it for approval. That’s how easy the process can be.

Only persons from eligible countries will be allowed to apply for this visa. The eligibility conditions are as follows.

  • The applicant must hold an eligible passport
  • Their passport must have at least 6 months of validity
  • They must have no intention of working during their stay
  • They must have a clean record
  • They must be vaccinated against yellow fever
  • They must have no intention of living in the country for too long
  • The application must be submitted a few days before their arrival

Furthermore, you don’t have to wait for a long time to get the visa as it is issued within three days after receiving the application.

Key Information About Liberia e Visa and Travel Information

Before you embark on a trip to Liberia, here is some vital information you should know about the electronic visa application and other relevant travel tips.

When To Apply: The best time to apply for this e-visa is three days before your trip. This is because electronic visas take at least 1-3 days to process. So, if you submit your application 72 hours in advance, you are sure of getting the visa before your trip. If you can apply sooner, then do so

Yellow Fever Vaccination: The yellow fever vaccination is mandatory for visitors from outside the West African sub-region. Such visitors must show a valid vaccination detailing the vaccine date. The certificate must also have their personal information.

Type of Passport: You must always use the right passport for your application, and the same passport must be used for your trip. Under Liberian law, the passport must be valid for a minimum of six months from the entry date. Secondly, all visits must be done with the same passport used for the e-visa application.

Visitors who come with different passports will not be allowed to enter.

Not for Employment: Electronic visas are issued to visitors for temporary visits but for permanent residency or for them to get a job. It is illegal to work in Liberia with an e-visa. If you wish to gain employment in the country, you should apply for a work visa at any foreign mission abroad. E visas are solely for business, tourist, and transit.

Entry Routes: The routes of entry you use should be the approved routes into Liberia. Land and sea travelers should consult and use only government-approved border crossings and ports to access Liberia.

Application Fee: The application fee for the electronic visa is mandatory, not optional. You can only submit your application if this fee is paid. Fees are payable with a credit or debit card with enough funds to cover the visa fee and transaction cost.

Applying For Extension: There isn’t any information about visa extensions for visitors who wish to stay in the country beyond the days of grace. If you wish to stay longer, you should approach the nearest immigration office in your city to make inquiries.
