Falkland Island Immigration Information Entry Visa

NOTE: The information below is just a general guide. Please refer to the relevant embassy/consulate for updated information.

Note: An Overseas Territory of a country is deemed to be part of that country when negotiating visa exemption. All nationals (including non-visa nationals) must obtain a visitor, work or residence permit, normally valid for four weeks. An extension of up to 12 months may be granted by applying to the immigration office on arrival and providing proof of sufficient funds and accommodation during stay. A visitors permit is issued after completing a visitors form and requires proof of return tickets, sufficient funds and accommodation. Visitors permits can be obtained from the Falkland Islands Immigration Office in Stanley, or on arrival.


Passport valid for a minimum of six months beyond departure required by all nationals.


Visa is not required for nationals of Andorra, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, EU, Hong Kong, Israel, Japan, Republic of Korea, Liechtenstein, New Zealand, Norway, Paraguay, San Marino, South Africa, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, Uruguay, USA, Vatican City, and most Commonwealth countries. Other nationals should enquire at the nearest British Consulate or Embassy/High Commission.
