Re: Query: Does A S African Need Visa For St Martin?

Saint Martin is a dependancy of the French overseas "Département" (DOM) of Guadeloupe.
I believe that South Africans must have a visa to travel to the French overseas départements.

The Dutch require a visa of all persons other than EU, USA, or Canadian passport holders. See here:

The Netherlands Embassy

and here:

Visit St Maarten :: Home

The French have a more wide-ranging set of exemptions, but SA is not among them, see here:

Foreign nationals holding ordinary passports exempt from visa requirements - France-Diplomatie

So, unless you qualify under the crew exemptions (for merchant ships)...

This link is the best I have come up with for every nationality, easy to explore.

Visa requirements for South African citizens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Hope this helps.

As a South African sailor myself I can answer this with a simple "Yes".
