You’ve been wondering about going to the Marshall Islands, haven’t you? In that case, you don’t have to get a Marshall Island tourist visa. A business Marshall Islands visa will be required if you are traveling on business. In addition, your current passport should be double-checked to make sure it is up-to-date and correct.
Please be aware that your current passport needs to be checked to ensure you have enough blank pages for any stamps and stickers required on arrival. Do yourself a favor and leave at least two visa pages blank. Another thing to remember is that your current passport still has some validity left. Inquire about the Maldives’ specific passport validity requirements; some countries require six months validity, while others require less. After that, find out if your flight requires a transit visa. In some cases, you may need to obtain a transit visa if you will be connecting flights.
