French Overseas Possessions — Visas and Vaccinations

To enter any of the French Overseas Possessions, you will need a valid passport, unless you are a citizen of the EU in which case a national ID card will suffice. Visas may be required depending on the purpose of your trip and the length of stay. Check with the nearest French embassy or consulate when planning your adventure.

Health and Safety

There are few health and safety issues when visiting the French Overseas Possessions. Crime rates are low, but vigilance is still necessary, especially when traveling to crowded places and busy tourist hubs. Check with your local government for travel warnings before embarking on any journey. Keep your travel documents close, as these territories have little in the way of diplomatic representation. No vaccinations or immunizations are required for entry to the French Overseas Possessions though precautions against endemic diseases like hepatitis B and D are recommended.
