PRESS RELEASE – In a thrust toward the effective monitoring of the tourism sector, the Government of Saint Lucia has advised that effective Sep. 1, 2014, yachters will be required to complete an Immigration Card upon entry into Saint Lucia.
This strategic move serves to position the Tourism Industry and Immigration Department to accurately account for yachting and stay-over arrivals and better serve the needs of our valued tourists.
The new card must be completed by each individual on board a vessel, disembarking at both the Rodney Bay and Marigot Bay Marinas, as well as the Vieux Fort, Soufriere and Ganter’s Bays.
Saint Lucia is fast becoming the yachting destination of choice for many. The added value which the yachting sector brings to the island’s tourism industry is evidenced by the range of employment opportunities available, economic benefits and linkages formed with other sectors.
