 Guam - Formalities

Clearance

Yachts must clear Guam Customs and Immigration at Apra Harbour. Before entering the harbour, contact PORT CONTROL on Channel 13, preferably some hours before entry, for instructions.

Visiting yachts are usually directed to proceed to MYC. Crews are often permitted to go ashore to await clearance. Officials will normally visit the boat.

If planning to arrive on a Sunday, you will be required to pay overtime for Customs and Immigration services.

Last updated March 2014.

Immigration

All visitors must have a valid passport.

US visa regulations are in force. All nationals, except those of the USA, are required to have a visa in advance of arrival.

The visa waiver scheme does NOT apply when arriving by yacht.

See Noonsite.com/USA/Immigration

It has been reported that a visa-on-arrival may be provided (at a much higher cost) but this is not certain, and those arriving without a visa may either be refused entry or only be granted a few days stay at most, and have to remain onboard. There is a $200 fine for arriving without a visa.

It is possible that citizens of the following countries may be allowed entry for 45 days under the via waiver scheme:-
Australia, Brunei, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Nauru, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, the Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and the United Kingdom. This visa waiver does not permit entry into the USA.
