While many nationals are business visa-exempt for stays of up to 90 days, they are encouraged to secure consular visas prior to travel so as to avoid issues/delays on arrival in Senegal.
 
There is no short term work permit in Senegal.  Work permits are generally issued for an initial 24 months and can be renewed. Foreign nationals who intend to stay and work for longer than 90 days must also apply for a residence permit (carte d'identité d'étranger - or CIE).  While the application is in process, they will be issued a receipt (récépissé), authorizing them to live in Senegal until the permit is granted. Residence permits are issued for six months and are renewable.
 
Foreign nationals should not conduct any business activities beyond 90 days without a residence permit.
