Burkina Faso is a landlocked West African country that you don’t see mentioned often as a place to visit. The infrastructure for tourism could be described as light. In 2015, a travel warning was issued for embassy staff to depart due to civil unrest that resulted in commercial flights halting at the airport. According to the State Department, that warning has been lifted as of September 21, 2015 as the situation has calmed down and commercial flights have resumed. If you want to experience a destination that is definitely off the beaten path Burkina Faso has some great places to take in.
United States citizens will require a visa to enter the country for either tourism or business travel purposes. The maximum stay on a visa is 30 days.
