Visa Requirements when travelling on a cruise ship
  • I am an Australian citizen who is planning to do a Caribbean cruise.
    Could anyone tell me if I need visa's to visit: Bahamas, St.Thomas,
    St.Kitts, and St.Lucia, as a cruise ship passenger
  • Good morning! Please contact the cruise line that you are traveling (or your travel agent) for the answer to this question. Since you are an Australian citizen, the rules could vary. U.S. citizens do not need visas for any of those islands, only passports. It's a good chance that Australian citizens don't need it either, but requirements often vary depending on your nationality.

    Enjoy your trip! You are visiting some of the prettiest islands in the Caribbean.

  • I am a Kenyan citizen holding a Kenyan Passport and would seriously like to do a Southern Caribbean cruise. Do I require a visa for the following islands where the ship will make a stop for less then 24 hours: Puerto Rico; St. Lucia; Virgin Islands; St. Maarten. I do hold a multiple visa for the USA.
  • Travellers to U.S.A. will need to log on to a website and obtain authorisation to travel prior to initiating travel, as part of the Visa Waiver Program, as of January 12th, 2009.
    This authorization may be obtained online through the Electronic System for Travel Authorization (ESTA™), a free Internet application administered by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through a U.S. government Web site.
    This can be done via the ESTA website at https://esta.cbp.dhs.gov

    This is a free service for VWP (including Australia) travellers.
    Note: this applies to travel to U.S.A, and for those travelling further afield, via U.S.A, even if passengers are only transitting in U.S.A.
