The Beninese visa is valid for 30 days starting from the entry date to the country. It is only valid within that time frame.
We recommend that you apply for your visa as soon as you know your travel dates. You should apply at least 1 month before the departure date.
To apply for a tourist visa online, you do not need to send the original passport as we only need the passport number. However, if you want to apply for a different type of visa, we always recommend that you apply in person at the embassy or consult directly the embassy by phone.

Most of the countries require foreign travellers to have a valid visa or a travel authorization. This is true also for Benin which requires a Benin eVisa.

Please note that every government reserves the right to deny entry into the country despite having an approved visa.

However, most denials are due to the fact the person poses a threat to security or national interests.
