Togo officially the Togolese Republic (French: République togolaise), is a country in West Africa bordered by Ghana to the west, Benin to the east and Burkina Faso to the north. The sovereign state extends south to the Gulf of Guinea, where its capital Lomé is located. Togo covers 57,000 square kilometres (22,008 square miles), making it one of the smallest countries in Africa, with a population of approximately 7.6 million
Visitors to Togo must obtain a visa on arrival to Togo unless they come from one of the visa exempt countries. Alternatively they may obtain a visa from one of the Togolese diplomatic missions. All passports must have at least 2 blank pages, and be valid for at least 1 year upon arrival at Togo.
One-week extendable visas (CFA10,000 or 15000 depending) are issued at major border crossings with Ghana (Aflao/Lomé), Benin (Hillacondji) and Burkina Faso (Sinkasse), and upon arrival at the airport.
The Service Immigration Togolaise, near the GTA building 8km north of central Lomé, issues 30-day visa extensions in one or two days. They're free when you extend the seven-day visa. Four photos are required.
