The British government advises against all but essential travel to Haiti due to the frequency of kidnappings and violent crimes against tourists. As a British citizen you do not require a visa if your stay is under 90 days. In addition to your passport, which must be valid for at least six months from your date of entry you will require a card which is issued on arrival in Haiti. This card must be kept for the duration of your stay and then returned to the Immigration authorities upon your departure. It is advised that you contact the Haitian embassy in Paris before travelling to the country for up-to-date advice.

There has been no British Embassy in Haiti since 2005, and the British consulate’s public operations have been suspended. For all visa enquiries or any other problems that would usually be addressed to the British consulate it is recommended that you contact the British Embassy in the Dominican Republic.
