Suriname Visa Policy

According to the Aliens Act Law of 1991, any foreign national who wishes to enter Suriname must get a visa unless they are from one of the countries on the visa-exempt list. This document is issued to facilitate migratory flows in and out of the country, and only applicants who meet the requirements will get the e visa. One of the most vital documents is a national passport which must be valid for at least 6 months from the date of entry.

Under the Aliens Act of 1991, nationals from some countries do not require visas to stay in Suriname for up to 180 days.

Visitors from Sint Maarten and Eustatius only qualify if they have a Dutch passport, and visitors from Montserrat only qualify if they have a British Overseas Territories passport)

Apart from the above, there are also nationals from other countries who don't need visas to enter Suriname but can stay in the country for up to 30 or 90 days depending on their nationality.

Note: Citizens from visa-exempt countries may apply for e-visas if they wish to extend their stay beyond the number of days allowed)

Suriname Tourist Card Eligibility

There is a special entry document for tourists called the Suriname tourist card. This card must be obtained online at least 72 hours before the trip, and only if travelers are traveling for tourism purposes. With the tourist card, tourists can only stay in Suriname for 90 days. The Suriname tourist card is not for all foreigners but only for those from selected countries.

Additional Information About Suriname Online Visas and Trip Preparation

Before you apply for a Suriname e visa or tourist card, here are some vital details to be aware of.

Check Your Eligibility: Before you proceed with the application process, check your eligibility to know if you qualify. Only nationals from selected countries qualify for online Visas.

Apply Outside: You can only apply for an e-visa or e-tourist card outside Suriname, not within its territorial borders.

Use The Same Passport: Make sure you travel to Suriname with the passport you used for the registration. If you present a different passport at the port of entry, you will be denied entry because the e-visa or card is linked to the passport you used for registration.

Apply For the Appropriate Visa: Before you apply for a visa to Suriname be sure of why you want to visit the country. Suriname has different online visas for different purposes. Should you apply for the wrong visa you may encounter issues at the arrival point. For instance, the transit and business visa for US citizens is solely for US citizens not for other nationals; if you apply for it despite not being a US passport holder your application will be rejected.

Travel With A Copy of Your Visa: Endeavor to travel with a copy of your approved e visa. Simply print it from your email address and bring it on your trip. Having a copy will save you the stress of convincing law enforcement officers that you are in the country legally should the need arise.

Use The Approved Routes: Only travel sit Suriname through approved entry routes. The airport and two seaports are the approved entry routes for e visa visitors. If you travel using a different route you may be denied entry into the country; moreover, traveling through illegal routes is risky and you just might be endangering yourself.

Leave Before Your Visa Expires: Always leave before or on the day your visa expires. Never remain in Suriname on an expired visa as this will attract sanctions from the authorities. To avoid mistakes, set a reminder in your calendar at least a few days before your visa expires so you can plan your itinerary around the available time.

Note: You can apply for an extension by visiting the office of the local immigration authority. Your extension application should be submitted at least a few days or up to a week before your current e visa expires. After studying your application, the officer will decide on the number of extra days to give you.
