The Senegal Passenger Locator Form is an important travel document that all visitors to Senegal must submit at immigration prior to their entry. It is also a portion of many health measures undertaken by the Government of Senegal to mitigate the spread of COPID-19 inside their territories. If you're travelling to Senegal either as a tourist or a student, you will want to get this form filled in before you touch down at any port of entry.

The Senegal Passenger Locator Form necessitates details having to do with your title, nationality, date and location of arrival. You also need to tick off questions pertaining to any other countries you have lived in and whether you have ever been to Africa and if so how many times. You can then tick off information in your passport information should you have one and then complete the application page by ticking off the boxes that are appropriate. When completing the application form, ensure that you join it correctly and hand your original passport and visa/advisor let to the immigration officer at the port of entry. The officer will give your application a personal reference number, which you can subsequently use to apply for your visa afterwards.

The purpose of this Senegal Passenger Locator Form, would be to prevent illegal immigrant entries into the nation. If you fall foul of this screening process you'll get a negative effect within five days. The negative result does not mean that you are banned from traveling to or inside the country but this usually means that authorities cannot follow you or issue you a visa. The reason why that negative results are issued within five days is because, in accordance with law, it is not possible to recognize an individual who has crossed the boundary without the knowledge of officials at the French and Senegal immigration offices. If you continue to travel to Africa after your visa has been denied, you face the same effects as before, meaning that you can be banned from traveling back to France.
