Countries: BIOT (Chagos)

In respose to a request for Noonsite, the BIOT office in London has confirmed that the length of stay for yachts visiting the Chagos Islands is 28 days. The cost is 50 pounds sterling per week.

The BIOT office also says, "We are obviously do not want to put lives or boats at risk and we will allow sometimes extensions, however as with all permits, these are at the gift of the Commissioner and he will ultimately make the decision as to the circumstances that merit an extension. We also are happy to issue subsequent permits - for example a yacht recently left Chagos to get supplies from the Maldives - was there a week and applied for a new permit to allow them to return."
