Travel to and from Abidjan

Several airlines have regular flights to Europe from Abidjan: Air France, Royal Air Maroc, South African Airways, Swissair, Corsair, Egypt Air, Emirates, Brussels Airlines, MEA, etc.

Four airlines operate Inter-African flights from Abidjan: Air Ivoire, Air Burkina, Cameroon Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, Mauritania Airways, Air Mali, Weasua, etc.

It is recommended that Governors and delegates book their flights, both to and from Abidjan. However, should the need arise, the Annual Meetings Secretariat at the Hotel Ivoire will help with flight confirmation and any other travel-related problems.

The Ivorian government will facilitate entry visa and customs formalities for delegation members who have forwarded their flight schedules and point of entry into Abidjan to the Bank’s General Secretariat. Measures will also be taken to welcome Governors and members of their delegations.

The General Secretariat will forward to Ivorian authorities all relevant information on arrival dates of delegations it would have received beforehand. To speed up immigration formalities, participants should provide certain information, namely: the delegate’s name, country of issue of his/her passport including the arrival date and airport of entry.

Each delegate is, therefore, invited to complete and return online the registration form on which s/he has entered his/her identification information as follows: first name(s) and/or initials, followed by the surname. If the surname precedes the first name, it should be so indicated (underlined).

Insurance

Prior to arriving in Abidjan, Governors and Delegates are advised to take out a health, travel and personal effects insurance policy for the period of the Annual Meetings.  The business hours for insurance companies in Abidjan are: from 7.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. and from 2p.m. to 5.30 p.m.&nbs
