Passport Requirements

U.S. citizens require passports to travel to Martinique, but visas are generally not required for visitors planning to remain for up to 90 days.

U.S. citizens should take special care to secure their passports while traveling as it can be time-consuming and difficult to acquire new proof of citizenship to facilitate return travel should the passport be lost or stolen.

All Americans traveling by air outside the United States are required to present a passport or other valid travel document to enter or re-enter the United States.

Prior to departure from the U.S., sea travelers must have a valid U.S. passport or other original proof of U.S. citizenship, such as a certified U.S. birth certificate with a government-issued photo ID.

While a U.S. passport is not mandatory for sea travel, it is recommended since it is a more readily recognized form of positive proof of citizenship.

The U.S. Consulate General recommends traveling with a valid U.S. passport to avoid delays or misunderstandings. A lost or stolen passport is also easier to replace when outside of the United States than other evidence of citizenship.

For further information, travelers can contact the Embassy of France at 4101 Reservoir Road NW, Washington, DC 20007; telephone 1 202 944-6000; or the nearest French consulate in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, New Orleans or San Francisco. Visit the web site for the Embassy of France at https://www.info-france-usa.org for the most current visa information.

A valid Canadian passport is required for Canadians intending to visit Martinique. The passport must be valid for at least three months beyond the date of your departure.

Visitors must apply for a visa if their stay is longer than three months. All travelers must also be in possession of an onward or return ticket.

These requirements are subject to change at any time. It is the traveler's responsibility to check with the country's embassy or its consulates for up-to-date information.
