Moving your employees to Guinea Bissau

Guinea Bissau, a developing nation located on the West African coast, offers an array of opportunities for international businesses seeking to expand their operations. With a steadily growing economy driven by agriculture, fisheries, and the export of cashew nuts, Guinea Bissau is gradually becoming an attractive destination for investment and business growth.

Despite past political instability, recent efforts have been made to strengthen governance and improve the country’s political climate, providing a more secure environment for foreign businesses to operate. Furthermore, the most widely spoken languages in Guinea Bissau are Portuguese, the official language, and Crioulo, a Portuguese-based creole language, with many locals also speaking various indigenous languages.

International businesses may be drawn to Guinea Bissau for a number of reasons, including its untapped market potential, abundant natural resources, and strategic location along the West African coast. By expanding your business operations in Guinea Bissau, you can capitalize on these opportunities and establish a foothold in the region.

Key immigration facts about Guinea Bissau

Understanding the immigration process is crucial for a successful relocation to Guinea Bissau. Foreign nationals planning to travel to the country must obtain the appropriate visa depending on the nature and duration of their stay. The main visa categories include short-stay visas, valid for a maximum of 90 days, and long-stay visas for extended stays. Most foreign nationals traveling to Guinea Bissau for work will require a long-stay visa.

To apply for a visa, applicants should be prepared to provide the following documents: a valid passport with at least one blank page for an entry stamp, recent passport-sized photos, biometric data such as fingerprints, proof of vaccination against yellow fever, and payment of the visa fee.
