2.3.6 Cote d’Ivoire Border Crossing of Sirana


Ivory Coast shares a land border with five countries - Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mali, Guinea and Liberia. At each of these borders, there is at least one official land border crossing where authorities are established (customs, police, etc.). The borders with Ghana (Noe and Niable), Burkina Faso (Laleraba) and Mali (Pogo) are the most used and well equipped with roads in good conditions. The borders with Liberia (Pekan houli, Gbeunta) and Guinea (Sirana, Gbapleu) are not used as frequently. There are partially improved roads which may be impracticable in bad weather, and numerous small bridges. 

Below is the available detailed information concerning some of these land border crossings.
