Tahiti extends yacht stay 36 months

ADVERTISEMENT

Local legislation has recently changed in French Polynesia. The time period for yachts to stay in Tahiti has been extended from 24 months to 36 months. This is a step for The Islands of Tahiti to attract more superyachts into French Polynesian waters, especially those seeking an ideal location to charter long term. Immigration and visas for yacht crew is still subject to the following: No visa requirement for EU crew members, long stay visa for non-EU crew members (allowing 6 months in the country) should be applied for at any French Embassy or consulate around the world before the yacht arrives into French Polynesian waters in order to avoid unnecessary hassle with immigration upon arrival.

Local charter regulation is simple and the process of obtaining a charter license is relatively easy. However, yachts should apply before arrival through their local yacht agent who will work with the department of tourism and maritime affairs to check that the yacht is in compliance with the international charter legislation.
