I am in Bangkok, Thailand, trying to plan how to enter Africa. I need a small amount of preparation, not much, but it needs to be put into the proper frame. If I choose the proper format, then all the other questions can be solved as they arise.
Every part of travel is a chain of events, one step, then the next step, then proceed, it is a process, not reservations would hinder my travel.
I want to go to Africa, I have three choices. I can fly from Bombay or Mumbai to:
1. Senegal - No visa needed for Americans. 2. Togo - No visa needed for Americans. 3. Ghana - Visa needed, but can get in Delhi, India
Actually, I can fly into any country, but I need permission to enter, or my visa. This can be a maze or what if situations.
My only saving concept is that normally a country adjoining to another country makes it possible to enter by providing an embassy.
I will fly from Mumbai, India to Africa, I have three possible choices. I believe I will choose to fly to Ghana, and then go by land to Senegal, fly to an Island called Capa Verde, and proceed to fly to Germany.

This is a map of my plans or idea to how to enter Africa and leave Africa. I am going to purchase a ticket in Bangkok from Mumbai to Ghana, it is easier to buy a plane ticket here than in India. Visa or the permission to enter countries is the first challenge.
To get the visas I need to have time to wait for them, maybe it takes one day or two weeks, I cannot force and embassy to perform. I could arrange these Visas in Washington DC, however it would cost 10 times as much and take about as long.
Each embassy holds my passport while they process. I have two U.S.A. passports; however, I have not yet found a Visa processing agency that seems professional enough to get my Visa in a chain.
IF I had a good company, I could send and says, I want the Visas for this list of countries. Presently this type of Visa is a fill out a form on the internet and click, not a feeling of safety. I believe they specialize in people that do not need a Visa, but think they need a Visa.
