Visa requirement for Togo

edited June 2010 in - West Africa
I am visiting Togo in West Africa in early July, for 6 days, and Iam not sure if I need to secure a visa before I travel or whether I can get one on arrival in Lome (the indication is that I can).

does anyone know the answer to this?

    Has anyone tried the option of obtaining a visa on arrival at Togo?
    Is it safe enough to let your passport be confiscated and get it back from the police the following day?

    You can obtain visa at Lome airport, not sure about the price, but should be 10,000 CFA for 7 days. If you need to extend your visa, you must go to Immigrations in Lome. Main office is near Togo cell office and American embassy is nearby. 1 month visa costs 10,000 CFA. You apply for visa there (be sure u have 2 pics), will receive your passport next day. I have good taxi driver there (french speaking only) and a guide - english speaking. If u need more info: [email protected] I'm Bulgarian, have traveled 3 times in Lome.
