The immigration system operates on two levels: 1) the immigration authorities handle visa and residency permits, and 2) the labor relations authority handles work permit.

A landing visa can be valid for 30 days and can extended for an additional two consecutive periods of 30 days each. This type of visa is only used for short term stays during which the applicant has no intention to be gainfully employed.

Foreign nationals intending to work in Liberia require a residence permit before a work permit can be issued. Classification of residency depends on whether the applicant is a national of an Economic Community of West African States county.

There are two types of work permits available - ‘New Issue’ and ‘Renewals’.  Processes for work permits vary according to the type of permit and level of work required.

Note that foreign nationals are subject to medical exams. 

Detailed Immigration Snapshots, Document Lists and Process Guides are available to clients on request.
