Entry requirements for Americans

A US passport is required. A visa is not required.

Entry requirements for UK nationals

UK passport holders require a valid passport for travel to the US Virgin Islands. Under the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP), most British citizens do not require a visa for holiday, transit or business purposes provided that their passports are machine-readable, the stay does not exceed 90 days, a return or onward ticket is held, and they check into the US government ESTA website prior to departure to register.

Entry requirements for Canada

Canadians require a valid passport, however a visa is not required. Visitors should hold tickets and documents required for return or onward destination.

Entry requirements for Australians

Australian nationals require a valid passport but do not require a visa for touristic stays of up to 90 days under the Visa Waiver Program. To qualify for the VWP passports need to be machine-readable, a return or onward ticket is required if travelling by sea or air, and they must check into the US government ESTA website prior to departure.

Entry requirements for South Africans

South Africans must hold a passport valid at the date of entry, and a visa is also required. Visitors must have return or onward tickets and the necessary documents for further travel.

Entry requirements for New Zealanders

New Zealand nationals require a valid passport. As they qualify for the Visa Waiver Programme New Zealanders do not require a visa provided they have machine-readable passports, return or onward tickets, register on the US government ESTA website before departure, and do not stay for longer than 90 days.

Entry requirements for Irish nationals

Irish nationals require a valid passport, but as Ireland qualifies for the US Visa Waiver Programme visas are not required for touristic or business stays of up to 90 days. Visitors must have machine-readable passports, return or onward tickets, and they must register on the ESTA site before departure.

Passport/Visa Note

Entry requirements are the same as for the United States of America. There is no immigration control for visitors arriving from mainland USA. Visitors from countries that qualify for the Visa Waiver Programme (VWP) must have a machine-readable passport (MRP) that has a bar code on the photo page. Eligible travellers under the VWP must include biometrics in their machine-readable passports if they wish to enter the country without a visa; this means that unique personal data, such as fingerprints or iris details, must be included in passports. All passports must contain a digital photo image in order to travel visa-free. Those travelling under the VWP must also register on the US government ESTA website three days before departure, which allows the US to screen visitors before travel. All visitors to the USA will have a photograph and two fingerprints taken by an inkless scanner on arrival, including those travelling visa-free under the Visa Waiver Programme. All travellers arriving or departing by air, land or sea between the USA and Mexico, Canada, the Caribbean, Bermuda, and Central and South America are required to present a valid passport. It is highly recommended that passports have at least six months validity remaining after your intended date of departure from your travel destination. Immigration officials often apply different rules to those stated by travel agents and official sources.

Note: Passport and visa requirements are liable to change at short notice. Travellers are advised to check their entry requirements with their embassy or consulate.
