Do I need a passport or visa to enter?
According the Government of Equatorial Guinea’s website, visas are not required for U.S. citizens, but they must fill out a visa application and present two passport photos and a letter of invitation from the visitor’s Equatoguinean employer or sponsor at the point of entry. In addition, a certification of vaccination for small pox, yellow fever, and cholera are required to enter Equatorial Guinea. In practice, U.S. citizens are rarely asked to provide either the above paperwork or proof of vaccination upon entrance.
Of the three vaccines listed, the CDC recommends only the yellow fever vaccination. Small pox and cholera vaccinations are generally not available in the United States. Immigration officials may bar entry into the country for those that cannot comply with the vaccination requirements. All other nationals must acquire a visa prior to arriving in country. It is extremely difficult to obtain a visa upon entry into Equatorial Guinea. U.S. citizens staying longer than 90 days should register with the local police station.
Private ships landing at an Equatoguinean port must get clearance prior to approaching the shore.
