    How to get to the Office

    When coming from the airport, you would need to take a taxi. Since taxis are not metered, you would have to negotiate the price. From the airport to the city of Niamey, the rate usually ranges between 3,000Fcfa to 5,000Fcfa.
    If the taxi driver does not understand the address, ask him to go to ‘the Plateau area, one street behind the consulat of Burkina Faso (Quartier Plateau, la rue derrière le consulat du Burkina Faso)’. Or opposite the office of « Commissariat à l'Organisation des Grands Evènements » (COGE).
