If you’re transiting through Burkina Faso

Check your passport and travel documents before you travel

You should check with your transport provider or travel company to make sure your passport and other travel documents meet their requirements.

Passport validity

Your passport should be valid for the proposed duration of your stay. No additional period of validity beyond this is needed.


You’ll need a visa to enter Burkina Faso. If you live in the UK, you should apply for a visa direct from the Embassy of Burkina Faso in Brussels. Contrary to the information on the Embassy’s website, there is currently no other method of obtaining a visa for Burkina Faso in the UK.

There are also Burkinabe Embassies in the region, including in Accra and Abidjan.
