How To Travel To Ivory Coast

AfricaIvory CoastHow To Travel To Ivory Coast

By plane

The Felix-Houphouet-Boigny International Airport offers daily scheduled flights from and to Paris with Air France and Brussels with Brussels Airlines. Flights to other West African cities are also available on a regular basis. The airport is a modern facility, and enhanced security has helped to dispel its previous image as a location where travelers might be taken advantage of.

By train

The railway trip from Abidjan to Ougadougou passes through rebel territory and is not recommended for international visitors.

By car

Attempting to enter Côte d’Ivoire through Guinea, Liberia, Mali, or Burkina Faso is not recommended. Ghana’s border is quite secure. You may easily take a shared cab to Aboisso and then a bus to Abidjan if you enter at Elubo. Between the border and Abidjan, there are approximately 10 military checkpoints, so have your papers ready. If you do not have appropriate proof of your vaccinations while crossing the border, you will be fined and given an injection in an on-site clinic.

By bus

Abidjan and Accra are connected by bus on a regular basis. The STC (Ghana) and its Ivorian counterpart alternate in providing the service.
