How Is Cameroon?

Ok , does anybody here have info on our neighboring country Cameroon?

Im thinking of going there next year. My parents have a problem of me traveling home by myself, so I was wondering if Cameroon is better, because I have family that stay there, and my close friend has a place there where he can show me around. 

So what do you think, Safe or no? Booring or exciting?

I personally want to visit their beaches, I heard they are very nice.

So what do you think.

@ poster I was there during my vacation last 2 months. u dont need a visa if u r staying for less than 3 months.

Kool place. Try going to Limbe and Kribi.

Dont forget ur yellow card! i.e immunization card.

Their police is something else. u ll start liking Nigerian policemen after dealing with them.

All in all, it's a nice place: constant power supply, well organised, 'tight' security.

Oh, Okay. Then you will need to get a visa. I do not see a way around that. Some airlines will not even let you fly out of here without a valid passport or visa for the country you are going to.

OTOH, you can try your luck going by land through Nigeria.

National Nigeria (NG)           /Destination Cameroon (CM)

Cameroon (CM)

Passport required.

- Passport and/or passport replacing documents must be valid

  on arrival.

Visa required, except for Nationals of Nigeria, for a stay of

max. 90 days ,provided holding normal passports.

Additional Information:

- All persons disembarking in Cameroon must hold confirmed

  onward or return tickets and other documents required for

  their next destination.

Confirm here

It is not compulsory for Nigerians to get visa if staying for less than 90 days. Stay Period will be giving at the point of entrance. But then it is better to be safe than sorry, if you have the time, apply and get the visa.

You will not need visa to get into an ECOWAS country such as Ghana. Cameroon is NOT a member though.

I heard Ghana has a nice beaches though. Not sure about Cameroon. As for safety, they are both safer than Nigeria. However, since you already have some contact in Cameroon, it will be likely be a better choice.

@ Disguy

You are quite right about the visa for cameroun, although this never occured to me and i have several Nigerian friends who have been there without visas. However they had gone there by land through cross river/akwa ibom states.

Yes you will need a Visa, locate the consulate in your country (where you live)

--A passport valid for at least 6 months.

--Two completed application forms

--Two passport-size photographs taken frontally

--a legalised letter of invitation with the Cameroon police from either the host/contact/partner in Cameroon and a letter of sponsorship from the applicant's well-known employer/establishment/organisation (in the case

of a private or business visit).

--Applicants would also need to show a return or continuation ticket and

proof of financial means of subsistence except where a tour operator/travel agency is organising the trip. A confirmed hotel reservation for tourists not in organised trips.

--Visa application fee

Thanks snow, I was thinking I would be safer there by myself and I would have more privacy because "Everyone" would want to see me  in 9ja  and Im not the type to refuse seeing family unless they are irritating.

How is the nightlife?

Traveling by cars? Roads?

Wait do I need a visa for Cameroon?
