Application Process

Flying over or landing in Togo, whether for commercial or private purposes, requires the necessary permits from the Togo aviation authorities (ANAC Lomé). The two primary types of permits you need to be aware of are overflight permits and landing permits. To obtain an overflight permit for Togo, you need to submit a formal application through the Civil Aviation Authority of Togo or a designated agent. You need to have an account in the Civil Aviation portal. The application typically includes details about the flight, aircraft, purpose, route and aircraft documents. It's advisable to initiate the application process well in advance, preferably 3 working days before your intended flight date. However, you should read our guide on VarnaJet short notice permits. If your flight necessitates a landing in Togo, you'll need to obtain a landing permit.
