Sounds good! What else do I need to know while planning a trip to Ivory Coast (Côte d Ivoire)?
First, check the current validity of your passport.
All travelers will need a passport valid for at least 90 days following your departure date from Ivory Coast (Côte d Ivoire). However, we strongly recommend traveling with 6 months validity on your passport at all times. Citizens of United Kingdom can refer to www.ips.gov.uk for forms and instructions for new passport applications and British passport renewals.
Second, make sure your passport has blank Visa pages.
Most destinations, including Ivory Coast (Côte d Ivoire), require that you have adequate un-used pages in your passport, allowing for any necessary stamps upon arrival and departure. We recommend that you have at least two free pages in Visas section of your passport before any international travel. British citizens can get extra passport pages added to their passports at www.ips.gov.uk.
Finally, confirm if transit visa is required for any connections.
Check with your airline in case you have connecting flights overseas as part of your journey to Ivory Coast (Côte d Ivoire). It may be the case that countries you pass through en route to your destination may require a separate transit visa. Please refer to visa requirements of the specific country.
