Since 30 April 2023, the process of applying for and issuing visas to enter Cameroon has undergone a major change. There are three main stages:
- Online pre-enrolment and payment of requisite fees: after opening a user account on one of the following websites : https://www.evisacam.cm or https://www.evisacam.com, the user fills out the online form, uploads the required documents according to the type of visa requested and validates his/her application. At the end of this process, the user will receive a notification by email or SMS. After the online payment of the corresponding visa fee, a notification of proof of payment will also be sent to the applicant by email or SMS;
- Processing of the application: after examination of the file, the user will receive an online Visa Authorisation with a QR Code. It should be noted that this Authorisation is sufficient to travel to Cameroon. The user residing in Ottawa will receive, in addition to the online Visa Authorisation with a QR Code, a notification by email or SMS for an appointment or SMS to make an appointment for biometric enrolment at the High Commission;
- Affixing of the visa sticker: Users who receive an online Visa Authorisation with a QR Code can travel to Cameroon. He/she shall present himself/herself at one of the border entry points of Cameroon to get a visa sticker affixed on his/her passport. The user residing in Ottawa is invited, after receiving the online Visa Authorisation with a QR Code, to proceed to a biometric enrolment at the High Commission (preceded by an appointment) to have a visa sticker affixed on his passport.
