Yesterday, I applied for my visa for Cote d’Ivoire. It was an experience.
The form had to be filled out in French (good job I know a native French speaker or two!). Now I know that technically an embassy is another country but it was a whole other world. You can only submit a visa application between 10am and 1pm. They had computers but everything had to be written down. The fee for a single entry visa was £100, and they only took cash.
I have to go back on Thursday between 2pm and 3pm to pick it up.
Next I have to get the malaria tablets and then I’m all set.
Two things, I’m too lazy to be a proper traveller and 8 days in the Cote d’Ivoire is more expensive than going to New York for a couple of weeks!
