The host country shall provide a FREE general clearance visa by the end of July 2014 from the Ministry of Interior for non-ECOWAS member state participants.

Health advise

Malaria is present in all areas of The Gambia throughout the year hence we would advise Europeans to see their GPs before travelling to get advise on appropriate measures visiting tropical places.
Participants from European countries require a travel insurance (including health) from their home country.
ALL participants are to provide a valid and updated YELLOW FEVER VACCINATION CARD to be presented upon arrival. For non-ECOWAS member state participants, a document showing current vaccinations is required.
