Support for visa application

All participants who do not have a representative office (Mali) in their country should follow the following procedure and need an invitation letter, it is advisable to follow these steps:

  • Provide a scanned copy of the passport to the conference team. The team will send a visa application to the Bamako Border Police;
  • On arrival, present yourself with 2 valid passport photos and the correct passport to the immigration service so that they can issue you with the visa.

We are available to answer any other questions about obtaining a visa.
