Pitcairn Island

Entry requirements


If you are an adult wishing to stay on Pitcairn for under two weeks you do not require a visa or licence prior to arrival. The Immigration Officer assesses applications for short-term visitors to Pitcairn upon arrival. If you wish to stay on Pitcairn for two weeks or more you must contact the Pitcairn Island Office in Auckland before making any plans to travel.  Without a valid “licence to land and reside”, access to Pitcairn will not be granted.

Passport validity

You must hold a valid passport to enter Pitcairn. Your passport must be valid for the proposed duration of your stay. No additional period of validity beyond this is required. 

Yellow fever

Check whether you need a yellow fever certificate by visiting the National Travel Health Network and Centre’s TravelHealthPro website.

Travelling with children

Visitors wishing to travel to Pitcairn with children under 16 years must contact the Pitcairn Island Office before making any plans to travel. An entry clearance application will need to be completed for any child wishing to visit the island.

The FCO does not currently allow our staff based on Pitcairn to be accompanied by their children.
