All visitors are normally given a 30-day stay on arrival to St Vincent. EU citizens may be given an automatic 90-day stay. Extensions to your stay are available at the Immigration Department upon payment of a EC$25 fee.

Customs Regulations

St Vincent doesn't have any particularly unusual customs regulations, though it is illegal to bring spearfishing equipment into the country.

If you're traveling with pets contact the Customs and Excise Department (www.customs.gov.vc) before departure as importing animals from many countries requires a six-month quarantine period. Pets can arrive on yachts without paperwork as long as they don't leave the boat.

Passports

All visitors should carry a valid passport with them. A round-trip or onward ticket is officially required.

Visas

Not required for citizens of the US, Canada and most European and Commonwealth countries.
