Expensive Togo visaI'm slightly surprised by the cost of the visa quoted to UK nationals in the Togolese Embassy in Accra - 35,000CAF or roughly 145 cedis.
Most of the posts on this site seem to suggest a visa is around 10,000CFA plus a little dash at the border.
Am I expected to haggle the asking price? (Only planning to spend 4 days in Togo which is why I ask)

1A lot of W.African countries have put their prices up, if you go to Ouaga you can get a VTE for 25,000 which would cover Togo
PLEASE no dash/payment of any sort at the border, it only makes it harder for the rest of us, I've never paid a cent extra at any border & don't want to start!!!

2For a four-day stay, the stamp provided at the border would be adequate (although that is only available at main crossing points). See the price quoted at their embassy in Paris, and if there is a difference then see if you can haggle.

3Voyager, just to make sure, I am talking about the Aflao border crossing from Ghana (which I think is the main one). Would the stamp at the border be the same cost as a 30 day t/visa? Might have to brush up on my french if so!
Thank you for your replies.

4Yes, I'm sure they give stamps at the Aflao crossing (just about the most important border point).
All I know: last year I flew into Lome without a pre-arranged visa and at the airport I paid for a stamp in my passport. Since I was staying for about three weeks I then needed to make my way to the Immigration office, where I was given a visa for no additional charge.
