Tuvalu Visa for Tourists and Business Visitors

Following the law, citizens of all countries except the Schengen Area and Taiwan are required to have a visa to visit Tuvalu ( wikipedia).

Tuvalu is a Pacific island nation that gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1978.

It’s located approximately halfway between Hawaii and Australia, making getting there difficult if you don’t have a visa.

The good news is that obtaining a Tuvalu visa isn’t complicated—follow these steps:

Get the necessary documents.

To apply for a Tuvalu visa, you’ll need to gather the following documents:

  • A passport valid at least six months after your trip to Tuvalu.
  • A copy of your passport’s bio page.
  • Proof of onward travel out of Tuvalu, such as an itinerary or flight reservation confirmation page.
  • Proof of accommodation in one of the approved hotels while visiting Tuvalu (e.g., a hotel reservation confirmation).

Complete the application process.

  • Fill out the application form.
  • Pay the visa fee
  • Upload your documents
  • Wait for your visa to be processed.

Submit your Tuvalu visa application.

If you’re applying for a multiple-entry visa, you must apply for each entry.

You can submit your application to the Tuvalu Embassy in London or any other embassies listed above.

Please ensure all your documents are in order and submit them as early as possible before your trip so you have time to make any necessary changes.

Make sure to include a self-addressed, stamped envelope with enough postage so they can send your passport back without having to pay extra fees when they receive it!

Wait for your visa to be processed.

  • Wait for your visa to be processed.
  • If you applied online, you could check the status of your visa application online. The Tuvalu Embassy should email you when they approve or deny your application.
  • If it’s been over two weeks since applying and you haven’t heard anything from them, contact the embassy to find out what is going on with your visa application.
Pick up your visa.

The visa will be mailed to you in about a week or so. You’ll get a tracking number with it so you can track the status of your application online.

When the visa is ready for pickup, you’ll receive an email notification from Tuvalu’s Immigration Department.

You must go in person to pick up your passport and visa from the post office. Bring proof of payment (like an ATM receipt) if applicable.

Gathering all required information and paperwork before submitting your application is important.

You’ll want to ensure you have all the necessary documents, information, funds and time before submitting your application.
