The new protocols apply from May 1, 2021. They distinguish between people vaccinated or immunized, and other visitors.
For any questions about entry and stay conditions in Polynesia, we invite you to consult the website of High Commission which contains the updated official information, as well as the website of Tahiti Tourisme.
Travel from France
No change from previous conditions. Only travelers who meet the criteria for compelling reasons (health, family, work) AND who have been authorized to come by the High Commission will be able to take their flight.
Here is the applicable protocol in summary, but all the steps are detailed on the High Commissioner’s website if necessary.
Travel from the USA
It is the only tourist market currently open.
Please note that :
- For passengers departing for the USA (who require a negative test for COVID-19 before boarding), the test center at the airport will be open again as of May 1 (every day that a flight to destination from the USA is scheduled, from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.).
- The tests carried out on arrival and during the stay will be the responsibility of the travelers (package of 5,000 XPF for vaccinated or immunized travelers, and 12,000 XPF for others)
For the moment, these packages are not yet applied to travelers, it will be advisable to check before leaving.
