The type of Mali visa you are applying for will determine the requirements.
For example, if you’re applying for a visa to visit Mali as a tourist, your passport must be valid for at least 3 months after your departure date.
Suppose you are visiting Mali on business or as an official representative of another country.
In that case, your passport must be valid for 6 months after your arrival date to enter and exit the country.
Suppose this is not possible because of an emergency (such as illness).
In that case, it’s recommended that travellers take out medical insurance before travelling abroad so that they can receive treatment if needed while abroad.
Additionally, if someone is going abroad with their partner but one person has already taken out all necessary documentation such as visas and passports beforehand before deciding which country would be suitable best suited them?
Then both parties should make sure that everything else goes beforehand, including making sure there aren’t any issues with needing additional documents when travelling outside their home country where they currently live.
Tourist Mali Visa
The tourist visa is valid for 30 days, and you can apply for it at the embassy or consulate of the country where you live.
If you are travelling to Mali, this visa must be applied before your trip.
If you need a visa to enter Mali:
- You will have to provide proof that all entry requirements have been met (e.g., tickets) and also pay an entrance fee of $50-100 depending on how long they anticipate staying in Bamako/Niger (the capital city).
- You should also consider getting Malian residency if possible; this could work out cheaper than buying multiple visas over time!
If you are travelling to Mali for business purposes and would like to apply for a business visa, please follow these steps:
- You need to provide the following documents:
- Invitation letter from the company you will be visiting.
- Passport copy.
- Proof of funds in your bank account (a bank statement showing an amount greater than USD 5,000).
- Proof of hotel booking in Mali or neighbouring countries.
- Health insurance coverage if applicable.
The transit visa is the best option if you are travelling through Mali and have a return ticket.
You can apply for this visa at our partner offices in Mali.
You will need to provide proof of your return ticket and your valid passport when applying for this type of visa.
Diplomatic and Service Visas
Diplomatic and Service Visas are issued to government officials, members of their families and employees of international organizations.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issues diplomatic and Service Visas.
Diplomatic and Service Visas can only be obtained by an applicant who has been granted a diplomatic mission visa in their country or foreign state, subject to approval from the Ministry’s Visa Section.
You need a work permit if you want to work in Mali.
This is because the country has not yet implemented its regulations for foreign workers, and the French embassy currently manages these.
You can apply for a work permit through your employer or the French embassy.
But, if you would like to apply for one on your own, it will take longer and cost more money – so why bother?
- Proof of qualifications and experience: You will need to provide evidence that shows that you have both qualifications (for example, certificates) and experience (for example, references). This information should be provided along with copies of any professional licenses or certifications you hold from other countries such as Italy or Spain where they might have been issued; together with documents of diplomas/degrees obtained at institutions recognized by Malian authorities such as universities abroad but still operated under licences issued by local authorities; whether this is an undergraduate or postgraduate qualification; etcetera…
* Proof of health insurance: There must be evidence showing that all applicants are covered under medical insurance policies through their employers, which protect them throughout their stay abroad.
Where to Apply for a Mali Visa

If you’re not in the United States and want to apply from outside of it, you’ll need to visit an embassy or consulate in person.
The website of Mali’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has a list of embassies around the world that include Mali’s main cities: Bamako (the capital city), Dakar (the country’s second-largest city), Niamey (the capital city again) and others.
