Entry Requirements

    • U.S. citizens are required to present a passport with a photo ID to enter the island.


    • Citizens of Canada need only to present proof of citizenship – preferably a passport or birth certificate with the raised seal – in order to enter St. Kitts and Nevis. If the birth certificate is used, it must be accompanied by a government issued photo ID (a drivers licence, for example) showing the same name. Where applicable, documentation of a legal name change (for example, a marriage certificate) must also be presented.



    • Additionally, proof of sufficient funds and a return or onward passage might be required.


    • Visitors may stay for a maximum of six months, but extensions may be requested at the immigration office in Charlestown. Visitors must enter with a return ticket.


    • There is a departure tax of $60 XCD (about $22 USD) payable in cash, or by credit card (Visa or MasterCard) at the airport.


    • Please reconfirm travel document requirements with your airline prior to the commencement of your trip.
