Since 1 March 2014, Bermuda does not issue its own visas. However, it requires that visitors who need a multiple-entry visa to transit the United Kingdom, the United States or Canada (the only countries with direct flights from Bermuda) present this visa upon arrival in Bermuda. For visitors who need such visa, both the passport and the visa must be valid for at least 45 days beyond the end of their intended stay.[11]

Organisers need to demonstrate that they are sufficiently prepared for a visit to Antarctica.[19][20]

British Indian Ocean Territory[edit]

 British Indian Ocean Territory - visitors must obtain a valid permit before travelling. Permits are issued by British Indian Ocean Territory Administration at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London. Any permit issued is valid for the outer islands only while the access to Diego Garcia is restricted to those with connections to the military facility. No unauthorised vessel is permitted to approach the Diego Garcia within 3 nautical miles and vessels in transit, on “innocent passage” as defined under Maritime Law, should maintain their course away from Diego Garcia. Proof of travel insurance and yacht insurance is required. Passports must be valid for six months.[21] Any person who enters BIOT without a permit is liable to imprisonment for 3 years and/or a fine of £3000.[22]

British Virgin Islands[edit]

Visa policy of the British Virgin Islands

 British Virgin Islands – Usually visitors are granted a one-month entry stamp on arrival. Persons visiting can be granted leave up to one calendar month in the first instance and may also be granted an extension for one further month, except for Taiwanese visitors who are granted a stay of six months upon arrival. Extensions for up to six months are granted on the discretion of the Chief Immigration Officer. There is a departure tax.[23]

A visa-free stay is granted to holders of British passports, all European Union citizens, and nationals of Andorra, Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Australia, Bahamas, Bangladesh, Barbados, Belize, Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, Chile, China1, Costa Rica, Dominica, East Timor, Ecuador, El Salvador, Fiji, Gambia, Ghana, Grenada, Guatemala, Honduras, Hong Kong, Iceland, India, Japan, Kenya, Kiribati, Lesotho, Liechtenstein, Macau, Malawi, Malaysia, Maldives, Marshall Islands, Mauritius, Mexico, Micronesia, Monaco, Namibia, Nauru, New Zealand, Nicaragua, Norway, Palau, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Samoa, San Marino, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Singapore, Solomon Islands, South Africa, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Swaziland, Switzerland, Taiwan, Tanzania, Tonga, Trinidad and Tobago, Tunisia, Turkey, Tuvalu, Uganda, United States, Uruguay, Vanuatu, Vatican City, Venezuela, Zambia and Zimbabwe.[24][25]

Permanent residents of the United States, Canada or the United Kingdom do not require a visa. They must arrive directly from their countries of permanent residence, or, for permanent residents of Canada and the UK, on an immediate connecting flight from their countries of permanent residence.[24] Visa holders of these three countries may also visit BVI for up to six months providing they have a used, multiple-entry visa valid for at least six months.[25]

1.^ Visa exemption according to a government press release.[26] Still listed as needing visas by the British Virgin Islands Tourist Board and Timatic.[25][24]

Cayman Islands[edit]

Visa policy of the Cayman Islands

 Cayman Islands - A maximum visa-free stay of 6 months (the period of stay is determined by the immigration officer on arrival), for tourist purposes only, is granted to: holders of British passports1; all European Union citizens2; nationals of Andorra, Antigua and Barbuda, Argentina, Australia, Bahamas, Bahrain, Barbados, Belize, Botswana, Brazil, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Costa Rica, Dominica, Ecuador, Fiji, Grenada, Guyana, Hong Kong, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Kenya, Kiribati, Kuwait, Lesotho, Liechtenstein, Malawi, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritius, Mexico, Monaco, Mozambique, Namibia, Nauru, New Zealand, Norway, Oman, Panama, Papua New Guinea, Peru, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Samoa, San Marino, Seychelles, Singapore, Solomon Islands, South Africa, Swaziland, Switzerland, Taiwan, Tanzania, Tonga, Trinidad and Tobago, Tuvalu, United States, Vanuatu, Venezuela and Zambia; and nationals of Jamaica under 15 or over 70 years of age1.[27][28][29]

A maximum visa-free stay of 30 days is also granted to permanent residents of the United States when arriving directly from the United States, of Canada when arriving directly from Canada or the United States, or of the United Kingdom when arriving directly from the United Kingdom.[27]

Nationals of China, India and Jamaica who hold a valid visa issued by the United States, Canada or the United Kingdom can visit the Cayman Islands for up to 30 days only if arriving directly from the country that issued the visa.[27][30]

Passengers can stay in transit for 24 hours without a visa except for nationals of Afghanistan, Albania, Algeria, Angola, Bangladesh, Belarus, Burundi, Cameroon, China, Colombia, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Gambia, Ghana, India, Iran, Iraq, Ivory Coast, Lebanon, Liberia, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Myanmar, Nepal, Nigeria, Northern Cyprus, Pakistan, Palestine, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Serbia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Syria, Turkey, Uganda, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.[31]

1.^ The regulations specify a visa waiver for nationals of all countries in the Commonwealth of Nations except for Bangladesh, Cameroon, Gambia, Ghana, India, Nigeria, Pakistan, Sierra Leone, Sri Lanka, Uganda, and for nationals of Jamaica between 15 and 70 years of age. Timatic lists British nationals as exempt from visas only if they are British citizens or British Overseas Territories citizens, but neither the regulations nor the Department of Immigration of the Cayman Islands mentions such restriction. Although Rwanda joined the Commonwealth of Nations in 2009 and the Maldives left it in 2016, as of 2018 both Timatic and the Department of Immigration of the Cayman Islands still list Rwanda as needing visas and the Maldives as exempt.
2.^ In May 2018, the government of the Cayman Islands issued a regulation exempting nationals of Bulgaria and Romania from transit visas, but the Department of Immigration and Timatic listed these countries as exempt from entry visas, while incoherently keeping them in the transit visa list. The visa waiver for these countries is unclear.
