Visa-free travel for Bajans visiting French islands

BRIDGETOWN, Barbados, December 31, 2009 – Barbadians visiting the French overseas islands will have a much easier time from now on.

They will no longer need a visa to travel to the French overseas islands of Martinique, Guadeloupe, French Guiana and Reunion. 

The visa requirement was also recently removed for travel by Barbadians to the French overseas collectivities of St Barthelemy, St Martin, and St Pierre and Miquelon.

The removal of the visa requirement is applicable for short stay visits of 90 days or less in any six month period.
