Suggested routes

From your port of embarkation, the best option is to transit in Dakar before flying to Banjul. You may choose the following routes:

  • South Africa/Dakar/Banjul

  • South Africa/Lagos/Accra/Banjul

  • Dubai/Dakar/Banjul

  • Brussels/Banjul

  • Casablanca/Banjul

Flying from the United States usually involves scheduled airlines which often connect with the flights from Brussels, then catching a connecting flight to Banjul.


A Gambian visa is compulsory to enter the country. It is recommended to proceed with a visa request at the closest Gambian Embassy in your country. A list of the countries which require a visa is available below. For those who can obtain visa on arrival, please note that there is a fee payable in cash and you will also be required to present the AfriNIC/AfNOG invitation letter as well as The Gambian Immigration clearance letter. 

The following letter is a formal invitation to allow you to proceed with a visa request at the closest Gambian Embassy in your country. Whilst there are arrangements being made for a visa to be granted upon arrival, we would strongly advise you to request for a visa prior to your arrival to avoid unnecessary last minute inconveniences.
