PRESS RELEASE ON E-VISABenin Embassy
The Embassy of the Republic of Benin in Washington, D.C. would like to inform e-visa applicants of the following:
Some individuals and companies have, alternatively to the e-visa application platform by the Government of Benin, created websites to provide intermediation services in obtaining the Beninese visa and usurp the authority of the visa issuance platform, thereby resulting in additional costs or loss of fees incurred by the applicants.
Given the situation, the Government of Benin has, among other things, taken steps to secure the official website, optimize the search engines indexing and file domain names similar to the official websites’ address.
These precautionary measures may not be sufficient to curb this phenomenon, therefore the Embassy is calling for greater vigilance from visa applicants and would like to remind them that the official website address for the entry visa and tourist visa in Benin is as follows: www.evisa.gouv.bj
