Togo

If your company is sending employees to Togo—Fragomen is here to help. Working closely with our Local Advisors in Togo, we provide the immigration strategies and support you need to get your employees on the ground as quickly as possible. 

Togolese law provides many solutions to help employers of foreign nationals. Requirements, processing times, employment eligibility, and benefits for accompanying family members vary by visa classification.

There is no business visa per se in Togo; business visitors may use the short-stay or long-stay visa to enter the country.  However, visas are qualified based on the purpose of the trip.  As such, visas issues for the purposes of business travel are commonly referred to as "Visa affaire".

Short-stay visas are issued for visits of up to 90 days; long-stay visas are issued for visits that exceed 90 days.

Note that Togolese entities that employ foreign workers must be registered with the Commerce Registry ("Registre du Commerce et du Credit Mobilier"), the Labor Inspection Office ("Inspection du Travail") and the Tax Office ("Direction Generale des Impots").

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