All About the Haiti Visa

    Are you dreaming of a holiday in Haiti? From its fascinating history to its friendly locals, there is plenty to see and do in this Caribbean nation. What’s more, this country has a very open visa policy that allows most foreign nationals to experience Haiti visa-free.

    This means that if you’re travelling from the US, UK or any European country, you can admire Haitis tumbling waterfalls or relax on its tranquil beaches for up to 90 days within a 180-day period without applying for a visa beforehand. All you need is a valid national passport with a few blank pages, and to pay a 10 USD tourist fee upon arrival.

    There are currently no eVisa or Visa upon Arrival (VoA) schemes in place in this country. If you are not exempt from requiring a travel authorisation, then you must submit an application and pay an application fee at a Haitian embassy before your trip. Byevisa has simplified all of this by offering you a step-by-step guide to this process below.

    Whether you’re doing business in Port-au-Prince or visiting to soak up the art and culture of the cities and towns, you’ve come to the right place. You can find out everything you need to know about visas to Haiti right here!

    Haiti Visa Requirements and Eligibility

    This tropical destination has an open visa policy and the list of Haiti visa-free countries is extensive. To find out if you qualify for an exemption, check to see if the following apply:

    • You are not a national of the 9 countries listed below.
    • You hold a national passport that is valid at least 6 months past your intended dates of stay and has at least 1 blank page.

    If the 2 points above apply to you, then you’re good to go! The only requirement from here is to pay the 10 USD tourist fee at the airport.

    Nationals That Require a Visitor or Tourist Visa

    • Colombia
    • Cuba
    • Iran
    • Libya
    • Panama
    • Syria
    • The Dominican Republic
    • Vietnam
    • Yemen

    *Please note that if you hold one of the passports listed above, you may be allowed permit-free entry if you hold a valid Canadian, Schengen or United States visa. For further information on your specific case, please contact your nearest embassy.

    Haiti Visa Application Process

    If your nationality is exempt, there is no application process to follow. Upon arrival at the airport, you will simply be asked to show your passport and state your reason for travel.

    If your nationality is among the 9 listed above, then you’ll have to complete an application at least 1 month before your date of travel. The first step of this process is to contact your nearest embassy or mission to request an appointment to drop off your documents. For help finding the closest embassy, try our Embassy Finder Tool .

    Once the date of your appointment arrives, the second step is to attend your appointment in person to present these documents:

    • 2 completed and signed Haiti visa applications.
    • Your passport, valid at least 6 months past your date of travel and with at least 2 blank pages.
    • 2 passport-size photos, in colour, and taken in front of a white background.
    • A letter of support that defines your reason for travel and your intended period of stay in the country. This letter should also provide the name and relationship of a reference in Haiti.
    • The name, address and telephone number of the hotel where you will be staying. If you’re staying with friends or family, you’ll need to include their full names and contact information.
    • Proof of a return or onward flight.
    • A Certificate of Employment (CoE) stating your position in the company where you are employed.
    • The application fee.

    We would advise bringing copies of all the original documents, just to be safe. If you’re given an application number at your appointment, be sure to save it, as it could be handy when following up on your documentation.

    Step 3 is to wait until your document is processed and then stop by in person to pick it up. Certain embassies may offer the option to use a pre-paid delivery service to return your documents to you by mail. Your specific consular section can offer more information on this process.

    Haiti Visa Application Form and Documents

    If you are exempt from an entry authorisation, there will be no need to fill out a form or turn in any documentation. It may help, however, to have copies of these documents on hand when passing through immigration:

    • Proof of accommodation (including your hotel name and contact number).
    • Proof of a return flight.
    • If you’re flying to a third country, you may want proof that you have the proper documentation to enter (e.g. an entry authorisation valid for that third country).

    There’s no guarantee that you’ll be asked to show any of these documents. Nevertheless, it never hurts to carry them with you. If you’re travelling as part of a volunteer mission, your organisation can also issue a letter stating the purpose for your visit, your travel dates and a point of contact.

    If you need to apply for a consular visa, then you’ll need to complete and sign an application form. To do this, you’ll need this information:

    • Your full name, address and contact information.
    • Your passport number, place of issue and date of issue/expiry.
    • Your employment details.
    • Your proposed dates of entry and departure.
    • Additional information on your itinerary.
    • Information on previous visits to the country.
    • The names and addresses of contacts in the country (if applicable).

    How Much Is a Haiti Visa?

    If you are exempt from requesting a travel authorisation, you will need to pay the 10 USD tourist fee upon arrival at the airport. We would recommend travelling with both cards and exact change in US dollars, to make sure your entry goes as smoothly as possible.

    If you’re not exempt from a travel authorisation, you will be asked to pay an application fee of 25 USD. This should be paid by money order or cashier’s cheque, made out to the Embassy of Haiti, prior to your appointment. Be sure to save the slip, as you will be asked to present it along with your other documents.

    Haiti Visa Status Check

    If you’re exempt from an entry permit, there is no need to check any status – you’re good to go! Your Haitian adventure is just a plane ride away.

    If you need to apply for a tourist pass through an embassy, you would need to reach out to the consular section to enquire about the status of your document. Keep in mind, however, that some consular sections do not wish to give information about the status of an application until a decision has been made. At this point, you will be contacted at the email or phone number provided on your application.
