Those who prefer to do much of their traveling on the water will find that Saint Lucia is well-serviced by ferries, making it easy to include Saint Lucia in any island-hopping tour. Visit www.express-des-iles.com which operates a ferry service between Saint Lucia and Martinique.


Foreign nationals visiting or entering Saint Lucia are required to have a valid passport from their country. A visitor to Saint Lucia shall be permitted entry as long as his/her passport is valid for the duration of the stay in Saint Lucia and he/she has proof of a confirmed onward journey. Visas are not required where the visitor is a US, UK or Canadian citizen, or where there is an agreement for exemption between home country and Saint Lucia. Some countries do require visas (see http://www.govt.lc/media.govt.lc/www/resources/publications/saint-lucia-visa-requirements-updated.docx for list). All travellers arriving by air are strongly encouraged to complete the new Online Immigration Form prior to arrival to avoid delays on arrival. The form should be submitted no more than 3 days before travel.

Getting to and from the Airport and Around the Island


Some of the major taxi services on the island include Saint Lucia Taxi Service, Saint Lucia Airport Transfers, Saint Lucia Executive, Saint Lucia Airport Shuttle, Real Saint Lucia Tours, and many more. Taxis are easily available at the airport; taxi stands or by telephone. All authorized taxis have a light blue number plate with a TX prefix. Fares vary by destination, the number of people, amount of luggage and the company. Before you hire a taxi, confirm the fare.


Cars, four-wheel drive vehicles and scooters can be booked in advance through your travel agent or at the airports, hotels or car rental offices. A temporary driving license is required for visitors and may be obtained with a valid driving license upon arrival at the airport, at the police station in Castries or at the car rental offices. Remember to drive on the left side of the road!
