Passport & VisaEquatorial Guinea - the only Spanish-speaking country in Africa - has hardly been developed in the context of tourism. As a rule, one can travel to any region of the country. However, certain destinations (e.g. the Pico Basile on the Isle of Bioko) require a special permit.
The authorities are rather exacting is their verification of non-natives' entry documents (visa, valid country-specific security clearance) and pursue actual as well as alleged irregularities with stringent measures.
Visitors from Germany, Austria and Switzerland require a visa to gain entry to Equatorial Guinea - along with a passport which remains valid at least three months beyond the length of the given stay and a return or onward-passage ticket. In addition, one must have verifiably sufficient financial resources at one´s disposal during the stay.
