Repatriation is guaranteed when applying for an entry visa as follows;
- For a stay not exceeding three months and except in the case of a transit visa, by a non-transferable and non-negotiable round trip ticket in the name of the applicant, valid for at least the intended duration of the stay.
- For a stay of more than three months, by a non-transferable and non-negotiable round-trip ticket in the name of the person concerned, valid for at least one year or by a document duly signed by the employer on behalf of the person concerned in the case of a foreigner in employment.
However, for a stay of more than three months, and if repatriation has not been guaranteed at the time of the visa application as provided for in paragraph 1 above, the foreigner concerned shall be required to regularize his situation within a maximum period of three months following his entry into Cameroon, by paying to the Cameroonian public treasury a deposit equivalent to at least the price of a tourist class air ticket from Yaoundé to the capital of the country of which he is a national.
The request for the release of the repatriation guarantee shall be sent to the paymaster general having received the payment together with the certificate of the services in charge of EMI immigration certifying that the foreigner is definitely leaving the national territory.
The amount of the repatriation guarantee, which has been paid to the public treasury, is fully returned to the foreigner following the release.
