    A visa must always be obtained by any visitor in order to enter Liberia.

  • Nationals of Sierra Leone, Central African Republic and South Korea.
  • Citizens from member countries of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS): they may enter Liberia without visa but must report to the nearest Immigration Regional Office at the country headquarters; those entering Liberia in Montserrado County must report to the Immigration Central Office in Monrovia within 48 hours upon arrival to register and obtain temporary visas.
  • Transit persons continuing their journey to a third country, provided they hold return or onward tickets; their travel documents will be kept by Immigration Authorities at the airport until their departure from Liberia.
