You must present a passport and proof of yellow fever vaccination to enter São Tomé & Príncipe. Holders of a valid U.S. passport do not require a visa when visiting for a period of up to 15 days.
São Tomé & Príncipe does not currently maintain an embassy in the United States. Travelers transiting Gabon can obtain the latest information on entry requirements from the Embassy of São Tomé & Príncipe in Gabon, B.P. 49, Libreville, Gabon, telephone +(241)-72-15-27, fax +(241)-72-15-28. For all other inquiries, please contact São Tomé & Príncipe’s Permanent Mission to the United Nations at 400 Park Avenue, 7th Floor, New York, NY 10022, +1 (212) 317 0644.
There are no restrictions on bringing foreign currency into São Tomé & Príncipe. Visitors leaving the country must report carrying any sums equal to or greater than 10,000 Euros, and be able to provide financial statements proving that they entered the country carrying a larger sum than the amount with which they plan to depart.
Lost or Stolen Passports: U.S. citizens whose passports are lost or stolen while in São Tomé & Príncipe could face delays in receiving a replacement passport. An applicant must normally come to the Embassy in Libreville to present an application for a lost or stolen passport. Though there are several commercial flights per week from São Tomé to Libreville, a person without a passport would face great difficulty in both boarding an international flight in São Tomé, and disembarking from that flight in Libreville. If an applicant is unable to travel to Libreville, the logistical difficulties in processing a passport application from a remote location will cause at least several days’ delay.
The U.S. Department of State is unaware of any HIV/AIDS entry restrictions for visitors to or foreign residents of São Tomé & Príncipe.
São Tomé & Príncipe may deny entry to people coming from Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) affected countries.
