Sierra Leone

Oversigt

Sierra Leone is an underdeveloped post-conflict state. The most significant threats a visitor is likely to encounter in Sierra Leone pertain to high crime levels, endemic petty corruption and risks associated with a lack of safe and functioning infrastructure, including road traffic accidents. The legacy of the Ebola crisis of 2013-2014 is a devastated healthcare sector, as the already-fragile state's nurses and doctors were disproportionately affected by the epidemic. However, there is optimism that the crisis has left a more resilient and adaptable public healthcare system, bolstered by international expertise and donor assistance. Nevertheless, public services and tourism infrastructure are limited or non-existent. 

Sundhed, sygdomme og vaccination

Although the Ebola crisis of 2014-2015 has receded, the virus will remain a latent threat, existing in reservoirs in certain rural areas, from which periodic cases are expected to return. Authorities retain the power to impose restrictions that restrict travel.   

Travellers to Sierra Leone are advised to take vaccinations for Hepatitis A, Typhoid, Polio, Hepatitis B, MMR and Tetanus-Diphtheria. You are required to have a Yellow Fever vaccination and produce evidence of this on arrival in Sierra Leone.

Depending on the specifics of the travel itinerary travellers may also wish to consider the vaccination for rabies, as remote areas will have lengthy travel times to the nearest clinic.

Malaria is present across the country and prophylaxis is recommended with Lariam, Malarone or doxycycline for travel to all areas of Sierra Leone. You should further mitigate the hazards posed by mosquito-borne infection by taking mosquito nets and insect repellent

Cholera is recurrent hazard in Sierra Leone, as is the more likely hazard of travellers’ diarrhoea. To mitigate the threat posed by such water-borne conditions, stringent personal and food and drink hygiene and safety precautions must be adhered to at all times.

Medical facilities are generally of a poor standard. Those injured or serious ill in Sierra Leone may wish to consider evacuating to a different country for treatment. Comprehensive travel insurance is definitely worthwhile having, but patients should be aware of the possibility that they may have to pay in cash and that treatment may be expensive.

Freetown has three main healthcare facilities, but receiving adequate treatment is unreliable and inconsistent. It is advised that all travellers obtain comprehensive medical insurance prior to departure.

Pas

All nationals seeking entry into Sierra Leone requires a passport, which must be valid for at least six months from the time of your visa application.

Visum

Visas are required by nationals of all countries, with the exception of nationals of citizens of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).  

All other visitors, including businesspersons, require a visa. Single-entry visas are valid for three months. Visas must be obtained in advance of travel from your nearest Sierra Leonean consular office. A multiple entry visa is valid for either 6 months or one year for maximum stay on each entry of 30 days.

Where an extension is sought after a visitor has already arrived in Sierra Leone, this may be applied for at the Department of Immigration in Freetown.

Visitors to the country are also required to show International Certificates of Vaccination for yellow fever and cholera upon arrival at the airport.
