Ask tax driver for roind pointe bellevue. Friendly people. One form, 2 photos, 1 copy passport, residency card for guinea or copy visa guinea, copy of your yellow fever vaccination. You have to sit through an visa application interview with the embassador and two others. Bit inimidating but very friendly. Interviews are daily between 11-12 o'clock. 100 US$ (no GF accepted) youcan change for a bad rate with the local street guys. Banks have same bad rate (dollar more expensive than euro). societe generale is 2 kms from embassy.

Pamelap border post

Verified: 7 months ago
GPS: 9.173599, -12.959324
Alt.: 40.3 masl
Border between Guinea and Sierra Leone. Open from 7am to 6pm. Police in Pamelap allowed us to stay in their station in town for free when we arrived too late to cross into SL. Bikes were placed in small room, vehicle parking in front. Guarded by officers on duty. Leaving Guinea is straightforward. Entering SL requires passing by immigration & customs. Vehicles need laissez passer (Le50,000 or more) with customs stamp (free for motorcycles, ~Le 50,000 for vehicles), free(!) immigration stamp and circulation tax vignette (Le100,000-200,000 depending on vehicle). Offices/shacks for both are 200m behind border station; go there and return for stamps. Interpol check and stamp to prove your vehicle isn't stolen also needed. Free. We never got the circulation tax vignettes due to a lack of cash, didn't buy them in Freetown either. Nobody ever asked for them. Took some convincing and promising we'd get it in Freetown to be let off without.

This area is not the Guinea i had encountered already. Until here, Guinea was friendly. People were friendly. Kind and warm. This area not so. The hotel was seriously dishonest. See the review. The shop across the road too. Tried to overcharge multiple times (both shops and also the street food stall) A very bad place

Need Société Generale bank to deposit the money for the Liberia visa. Best be coming speaking some French as mine was tested. At this location you pay the Guinea Franc for the vehicle. About 150m opposite is another branch where you pay the USD visa fee. Not sure if you can do both at the latter. Helpful enough. They were a bit annoying i offloaded a load of small USD as they itemise the quantity of each denomination. But all done

Liberia Embassy

Location of the embassy correct as of today. Google is incorrect. There is a sign on the main road for it too. Opposite Parapharmacy UK Passport  USD$100 (only dollar) Other passports the same except USA where its $141. Chinese is $50 and Malaysian $5 should that help anyone You also need to buy a vehicle permit. 50k GF for a moto. 200-300k for a car i think. At 5€ i didn't question this as i have a carnet You have to pay in at Société Generale. They said only the centre ville branch. I've checked in there too. But it's far because of traffic. Make your way across to the main highway. Much much faster 3 working days. I asked if possible for 'express' service and gave a line about wanting to leave conakary so i could spend Xmas with friends in Sierra Leone. They agreed for the fee (cash naturally). I tried to keep a straight face when asked for 50k Guinea Franc (€5). I thought I'd be paying 10 times that! Helpful staff once they got their head around the method of trip. I had all the paperwork, they wanted to see insurance, driving licence, booking for a hotel, yellow fever, 5 photos (with the vehicle permit), passport copy. And a lettet about the trip. Thats important. I had letters from work explaining my sabbatical leave, a bank statement and a clean criminal check (from my job). These were not vital, but helped i think. I also think having all visas up to Togo helped explain the journey Get there early in the morning. Open 9-4. I got back with the bank receipts just before lunch. Ambassador wasn't there. I went back just after 3 to chance it and got my visa

Nicest Hotel in town (I think). Negotiated hard to get 60,000GNF for one person in 4x4 for one night. They put me around the back out of the way, inside the nice big compound. Took a lot of negotiating, and they didn't really offer any amenities.

I drove in to checkout the waterfall - the two military guys guarding the place are extremely bored and were very happy to give me a tour of the whole place, and were very happy for me to camp in front of their building. I gave them hot tea and some food, they were very happy. Probably toilets and some kind of water if you ask.
