Thank you VSL, both services you offered were fantastic and extremely professional

Having recently travelled to Sierra Leone to visit family, I was greatly impressed with the service VSL offered, both in helping to obtain a VISA, and also in meeting us at the airport and getting us onto the boat across to the mainland.

Having to sort out a VISA for travel is a real pain – I certainly didn’t want to have to visit the Sierra Leone embassy in London twice. Thankfully VSL offer a fantastic service where by sending one email and paying the VISA fee, they will arrange your VISA for you. In the email you have to send a few details and a scan of the picture page of your passport. Easy as that! It’s done quickly and payment is secure, through PayPal. Within a couple of days we had our VISAs emailed back to us to print off. Perfect and no hassle at all!

The first time you arrive in Freetown you have to get a boat across the water to the mainland (a 30 minute journey). It can be a bit daunting after a long journey, as you will have a lot of people trying to get you to use their company in the baggage reclaim hall. Thankfully, VSL arranged for someone to meet us once through arrivals who already had our tickets. He walked us to the ‘Sea Coach’ terminal, ensured our baggage was put on the correct bus and also took us to the bus we needed to be on (it’s a five minute bus ride from the airport to the boat).

I can’t recommend this service enough, it put our minds at rest knowing that someone would be meeting us at the airport in the early hours and it was one less thing to worry about when travelling.
Thank you VSL, both services you offered were fantastic and extremely professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend both to anyone travelling to Salone!

I love booking things via Visit Sierra Leone. I have used them several times when I have had people visiting and it has always worked out well.

I have used VSL's online visa service twice now and both times it worked perfectly and very quickly (the second time I received the visa the next day!).

The visa was very easy to get. Everything went on fine.
Also, the Sierra Leone Embassy was asking a very expensive visa, whereas on the website I paid only 30€ (for Mauritian nationality)
When we arrived in Sierra Leone by land, we had some trouble at the border. We called Bimbola Carrol, who has been very, very useful. He talked to the immgration officer on the phone and it went all well. We then needed some recommandations when we were in Kenema, and despite the moment (a sunday morning) again, he has been very helpful.
I therefore highly recommend VSL, specially if you are travelling without any contact in Sierra Leone.

Thank you to VSL for helping me with visa, flight, water taxi, vehicle, currency exchange, and accommodation needs! It made for a very easy and friendly first business trip to Sierra Leone. Looking forward to working with you again!

Coming to Sierra Leone is a pleasure with the great service provided by VSL Travel. From the very prompt reply to my visa application, which gets me through Passport Control with minimal issues, to the very capable services of Lamin who provides all the support necessary for the water taxi transfer. I know all arrival details are sorted and if I have a problem, that will be handled as well. Thank you VSL Travel. You are a wonderful example of a great service company.
