Travelling to Burundi

edited June 2009 in - East Africa
Hi, I have an irish and a british passport - I am hoping to travel to Burundi for 1 week and need advice regarding applying for a visa - which passport would be best to travel with and how do I apply for a visa?

    I would go with the british passport. You get your visa upon arrival at the airport. Are you flying into BJM? It costs 80 US dollars for 1 month. I'm not sure if it is less for only being there for 1 week. I just spent 5 weeks in Bujumbura, but they would only allow me to get a 1 month visa at the airport and then I had to go to the immigration office and purchase 5 more days for 10 US dollars.

    Have fun in Burundi ... you will love it!!
