Customs Formalities

The Government of Côte d'Ivoire will facilitate customs formalities for members of delegations participating in the Annual Meetings. Special arrangements will be made to ease customs formalities in accordance with the current regulations of the country.

However, it is strictly forbidden to bring into Côte d’Ivoire prohibited products such as narcotics.

No dangerous goods may be brought into the country or exported from the country. Firearms are also prohibited. Any visitor wishing to bring a weapon of any kind, including sporting weapons, must obtain an authorization to bear firearms.

It is important to remember that the so-called “New Africa” is made up of 54 countries in five regions. Africa is not a single monolithic whole. The only safe generalisation is that Africa is planning, managing and starting to finance its own destiny.
