"Motivation money for the police" Top 5 Page for this destination Cameroon Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Bernd_L

Cameroon Warnings and Dangers: 21 reviews and 15 photos

While travelling in Cameroon you'll encounter police controls very often. So it's a very good idea to have proper documents at hand at every time.

But the police may find a problem anyway. And then it can happen that you are asked to give a bit 'motivation money'. You are not obliged to pay, because corruption is illegal in Cameroon too. But if they only ask for small amounts you may be better off to pay. It's not worth to save some CFA-Franc while having to discuss the (non-existing) problem for a long time.
