Citizens of the United Kingdom, the Commonwealth, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) the European Union (EU) and other nations with a reciprocal via abolition agreement with The Gambia do not require a visa to enter the country; whether on holiday or on a business trip not exceeding 90 days. All other nationalities should possess a visa, which is available from any of the Gambian embassies and consulates, including the Gambian High Commission here in London.

Note: Tourists and others travelling on last minute bookings will be allowed entry but will be required to submit their passport to the Department of Immigration in Banjul within 48 Hours to be issued a proper visa.

The Gambian High Commission and Consular Offices are the only accredited Gambian Government Agencies who are permitted to grant Gambian visas in a country other than The Gambia.
