Visa policy of Suriname

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

A foreign national wishing to enter Suriname must obtain a visa unless he or she is a citizen of one of the eligible visa exempt countries.[1] Surinamese visas are documents issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and its subsequent diplomatic missions abroad, with the stated goal of regulating and facilitating migratory flows. All visitors must hold a passport valid for 6 months. Visitors who have recently been to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone are refused entry due to Ebola virus epidemic in West Africa.
