Haiti Travel Update: All Foreign Passport holders Travelling to Haiti must Pay a Fee at the Airport starting 01 July 2014

Attention everyone traveling to Haiti with a Foreign (non-Haitian) passport... Starting 01 July 2014, you will be subject to pay a tourist fee set at 10 U.S. dollars or 10 euros or $10 Canadian, whichever is more convenient to you, upon landing in Haiti...

United States Passport
United States Passport

Whether you arrive in Haiti by land, sea or air, you will pay that $10 unless you are a child, a diplomat, or you hold an official passport...

This is according to a note published by Haiti Press Network Friday, 20 June 2014, that is said to be released by the Haiti Ministry of Tourism. Once we receive the official note, we will update this page.

QUESTION: E tout Diaspora yo ki genyen paspò etranje yo?

(What about Haitian citizens who hold foreign passports?)

Tough luck... The note did not specify anything about that... Which means: No Haitian Passport? Pay $10... LOL...

What do you think about that?

We support this country on a day to day basis and we would love to go to Haiti to see improvement when you take money from my money transfer or for visiting just please take the money but show me something that I can feel good about thats my

I think it retard all they going to do is pocket the money..

It's not like the money is for infrastructure, bridges, highways, police officer.

None corrupt government or clean water for the Haitian people.

The way the Haitian diaspora get treated its unbelievable without out the diaspora contributions I don't know what will Haiti become.

You need the diaspora we deserve to be treat
