Do I need a passport or visa to enter?
A passport and visa, or authorization to enter, are required. Proof of yellow fever vaccination is required for entry. A visa or authorization to enter must be obtained in advance, as airport visas are not available. You may apply online for an authorization to enter at the eVisaST website. Be aware that previous applicants have experienced some technical difficulties with this website, but this is currently the only way to obtain a visa to enter São Tomé and Príncipe. You must receive the authorization to enter by email, print it out, and take it with you to the airport. São Tomé and Príncipe does not currently maintain an embassy in the United States. Travelers transiting Gabon can obtain visas and the latest information on entry requirements from the Embassy of São Tomé and Príncipe in Gabon, B.P. 49, Libreville, Gabon, telephone 241-72-15-27, fax 241-72-15-28.
