All vessels arriving in Saint Lucia must report at one of the ports of entry:
The master of the vessel must report directly to Customs & Immigration; passengers must not disembark until the master of the vessel has cleared Customs where the following documents must be presented:
- A valid passport for all passengers and crew
- Clearance from the last port of departure
- Vessel registration documents
Upon arrival, you are required to notify Customs & Immigration officials of your intent to visit other ports or mooring areas on the island. A permit will be given for this purpose. Saint Lucia’s Immigration policy allows for stays of up to 42 days. It is advisable to request the maximum length of time you can conceive of staying at your initial report to Immigration to avoid the inconvenience of later having to apply for an extension at the Immigration office in Castries.
