Entry rules in response to coronavirus (COVID-19)
Kiribati re-opened its borders on 1 August 2022. For the latest information on COVID-19 protocols for entry to Kiribati, see announcements on the Government’s social media posts on Facebook.
Regular entry requirements
You don’t need a visa to enter Kiribati provided you hold a return/onward ticket and sufficient funds for your stay. You’ll normally be granted a 1 month stay. This can be extended on application to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration in Bairiki, for additional one-month periods for a maximum 3 additional months, provided your passport remains valid.
If you’re travelling to work in Kiribati, you should get a visa in advance by arrangement with your employer.
