Cameroon Visa Requirements
ENTRY/EXIT REQUIREMENTS: A valid passport, visa, evidence of yellow-fever vaccination, and current immunization records are required, and travelers may be denied entry if they lack the proper documentation. The Embassy of Cameroon highly recommends you obtain a visa prior to departing the USA. Please see our Cameroon visa page for more information.
COUNTRY DESCRIPTION: Cameroon is a developing country in central Africa. Although there are many natural and cultural attractions in Cameroon, facilities catering to Western-style tourism are quite limited. The capital is Yaoundé, though Douala, the country's largest city, is its main port and commercial center. Official languages are French and English, though French predominates in most of the country. English may be used in Cameroon's two Anglophone provinces of Southwest and Northwest, and the larger cities. The staff of major hotels in Cameroon's large cities is usually bilingual. In February 2008, social and political unrest led to civil unrest, although the immediate threat of violence has now receded. For general information on Cameroon, read the Department of State Background Notes on Cameroon.
REGISTRATION / EMBASSY LOCATION: Americans living or traveling in Cameroon are encouraged to register with the U.S. Embassy through the State Department's travel registration website so that they can obtain updated information on travel and security within Cameroon. Americans without Internet access may register directly with the U.S. Embassy. By registering, American citizens make it easier for the Embassy to contact them in case of emergency.
