Visa Touristique Entente-VTE, West Africa Visa
This is a visa what is hard to get! It is a West Africa visa that is valid in Ivory Coast, Burkina Faso, Niger, Togo and Benin.
It is hard to get it when you are in Africa but you can get it in Barcelona at the Benin embassy. The costs for it are 100 euro, it’s valid in 90 days to stay 60 days. And you can enter each countries one time. We didn’t get it so I don’t know what you all need to apply for it.
If you want to have in West Africa You need to go Ivory Coast or Burkina Faso. Of course, first you need their countries visa to enter. After that you can apply. The cost is around 55 Euro in one of the countries. Some people told us when apply to VTE in Burkina Faso They look your Burkina visa and They want to you have 3 months Burkina visa.
LAST UPDATE : We just learned more details about VTE- West Africa Visa more. (January 2020) They are not giving more in Barcelona. Also it is not easy to get any where else. Looks like visa is official exist but They don’ t want to give or they don’t have visa paper to put on the passport.

Really like the post. I am headed to West Africa myself and thinking about getting the Visa Entente. I had heard from some people that it was possible to get this in Lome Togo and for multiple entries. Do you know if that is true? It is hard to find information about this online as it is mostly very conflicting. Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.
Hello Daniel, I do think this is possible. The only thing is that you also will need a visa for Togo (what is pretty cheap 10.000 cfa = aprox. $16). This is how it works if you get the Visa Entente in Burkina Faso, if you have the option to get it in Barcelona it’s your best change and cheapest way.
