Border with Guinea

Hi there,

I've heard that the border with Guinea is still closed. I'm just wondering if anyone knows if there are any plans to re-open it? Is it closed both ways or can I travel from Cote d'Ivoire to Guinea?
I'm planning to go there in early November.
Thanks for any info.

Hi - I'm a Canadian citizen living in Canada (Vancouver) and am planning to go to CDI for tourism. Options for getting a visa seem to be (i) get one in advance through the CDI embassy in Ottawa, and (ii) apply for an eVisa which I can pick up at the airporton arriving in Abidjan.

The problem with option (i) is that - apparently - I have to appear in person at the embassy. Ottawa is not exactly a quick trip from Vancouver so that's not a viable solution.

I don't really want to fly in to Abidjan…

Ivory Coast Evisa

Hello,

I've applied on behalf of a colleague for an Evisa to the Ivory Coast - this was our only option due to lack of time. I want to make sure I am going through the process correctly. Do I just enroll on Snedai, make the payment, receive the first email and wait for the 2nd email to come through? I'm assuming fingerprinting will happen at the airport in Abidjan?

Very saddened to hear of the recent attack in Cote D'Ivoire - yet still resolute to visit.

I can't seem to find any real budget options in Abidjan or Grand Bassam? Does anyone have any leads? What is a good area to stay in Abidjan?

Ongoing attack

Sad to report that there's an ongoing attack with at least two men armed with kalashnikovs in Bassam ... it seems they approached from the beach.

Information is a little confusing at the moment, I've seen one video of everyone running in from the beach. But there are several injured already being taken to hospital, reports of hostages. It's all happening around Hotel Etoile du Sud with reports about the Museum area too. The police are there ...

We were warned after Ouaga of a possible…

Volunteer needed

Hoping the mods won't mind me posting this.

C.R.E.E.R is looking for a volunteer to start mid-April, ideally for 3 months or more. We're a transit centre for trafficked children and as such will require references and police checks.

We're based in the east of the country near the Ghanaian border. There's NO charge, you just need to get yourself there with proof of a medical insurance policy; we provide a room, food and a scooter to get around town.

FRENCH speakers preferred, if you have…

Hi,
I'm thinking about a 10 day trip to the Ivory Coast this summer. I would like to ask how easy is it to backpack with public transportations across the country. I wanna land in Abidjan and spend few days there. Can someone suggest me an itinerary? I wanna go to the Tai NP and to some beaches to the southwest, but is there more to see? Thank you a lot

Hi all,

Just wondering what would be the best way to get from Grand-Bassam to Cape Coast (Ghana) - is it possible to do this by public transport in a day?

Thanks!
